Abstract—This paper investigates the effects of Static Var Compensator (SVC) and Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) on voltage Collapse of a power system. The effect of Critical Fault Clearing Time [CFCT] of the system due to facing the fault, to prevent permanent voltage instability has been analyzed. Comparative performance evaluation of SVC and STATCOM has been examined. A Power System Computer Aided Design /Electromagnetic Transients including DC (PSCAD/EMTDC) is used to carry out simulations of the system under study and detailed results are shown to access the performance of SVC and STATCOM on the voltage collapse of the system.
Index Terms—CFCT, STATCOM, SVC, stability, voltage collapse.
