The customer also has to provide system harmonic impedances to enable the manufacturer of the SVC to design suitable harmonic filters. The software for these studies is commercially available in the case of the SVCs for transmission systems. Further, the SVCs for the transmission systems are invariably symmetrical, that is, the ranges for the var compensation in all the phases are the same.
This need not be so in the case of the SVCs to compensate single-phase railway loads. Most commercially available programs for load flow studies use the positivesequence network and assume all the system loads to have a constant active power P and a reactive power Q. When we have single-phase railway loads, we need a threephase load flow program sometimes referred to as independent-phase load flow to determine the negative-sequence voltages at the PCC.
To illustrate the special problems in specifying SVCs in projects with single-phase loads, we will briefly discuss the Central Queensland Railway Project, which was already completed in the s in two stages and is in operation now. Substation kV. Supply to Q. From Sastry, V.

With permission from IE Australia. The traction loads at some substations can be as high as 40 MW at 0. This indicated that some compensation was needed at these substations to maintain an acceptable quality of power supply. At present there is no internationally accepted standard for voltage unbalance for time-varying loads. Based on the considerations in P. From Wright, P. A three-phase power flow program developed locally was used to conduct the necessary studies.
The other line voltages will be slightly different based on the amount of negativesequence voltage due to unbalance in the system at that bus. If all loads are represented as constant P, Q loads, then there will be convergence problems in three phase power flow programs due to unbalanced voltages in phases A, B, and C. TCR 30 MV.

The diversity factor was based on the overall train density. As can be appreciated from the previous discussion, certain assumptions are quite specific to each traction load compensation project. Further, it is uneconomical to provide full compensation for all peak loading conditions. In view of the different peak loads on different phases such as A, B, and C, we will obtain unsymmetrical ranges for SVCs.
To optimize the number of thyristors used in SVCs, nonstandard secondary transformer voltages such as 5. One has to calculate the required ranges of compensation at the delta side of the Thus, considerable planning studies are necessary before one can specify the ranges for SVCs to compensate traction loads. In addition harmonic impedance values at the 13 PCC had to be calculated for different possible operating conditions by considering transformer, line outages, and so on, to enable suitable harmonic filter design. From Dickmander, D.
In this section we describe an SVC used to control voltages in a transmission system. Because of its importance for voltage control during large disturbances in the New England area and in the Maritime provinces New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the Chester SVC has been designed to satisfy stringent performance requirements and to use some unique control strategies not previously applied to SVCs. These are discussed in detail in Reference We will be discussing the general control concepts of the SVCs in the next chapter.

Petersson, T. Dickmander, D. This is essentially positive-sequence voltage regulation of the customer bus. To perform this function, it will have a voltage regulation loop with voltage and current feedback loops providing the necessary slope from the no-load to full-load condition.
From Engberg, K.
phon-er.com/js With permission from ABB. It is common to adopt SVC voltage control system settings when the system short-circuit conditions correspond to SCmin. The following conclusions can be drawn regarding the effect of network short-circuit power on the response times of the SVC control system.
For large slope values, an increase in network short-circuit power has a smaller effect on the response time. For weaker network states, a small short-circuit power shows sharper increases in response time.

However, an automatic gain supervision control cannot handle special circumstaces, such as those that arise when rebuilding the network after a blackout or when lines are lost.
