A high performance advanced static VAR compensator (ASVC) which uses a three-level voltage source inverter is presented and analyzed in this paper. The paper shows an analysis based on the modeling of the system in d-q axis to facilitate the design of the control method..
This paper not only describes the closed loop reactive power control design procedure but also deals with the study on the application of the Advanced Static Var Compensator (ASVC) for the control of such power in distribution system.
Furthermore, the dynamic behaviour of the system is analysed using Simulink with PLECS toolbox through a set of simulation tests under various transient conditions. The results obtained may lead to correct design of a robust controller for reactive power applications.
