Optimal Control Design of Static Synchronous Series Compensator for Damping Power System Oscillation

Prechanon Kumkratug

Abstract

Problem statement: In power systems, there exists a continuous challenge to improve dynamic performance of power system. Approach: The Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) is a power electronic based device that has capability of controlling the power flow through the line both in steady state and dynamic sate. This study applied the SSSC to damp power system oscillation. The optimal control design is applied to derive the control strategy of SSSC. The simulation results are tested on a Single Machine Infinite bus. The proposed method is equipped in sample system with disturbance. The generator rotor angle curve of the system without and with a SSSC is plotted and compared. Results: It was found that the system without a SSSC has high variation whereas that of the system with a SSSC has much smaller variation. Conclusion: From the simulation results, the SSSC can damp power system oscillation.
