  The purpose using capacitors in distribution networks is to reduce the total losses of the network. Capacitors help regulate the power factor and voltage in the electrical distribution system, and can be controlled remotely, in and out of the system. Capacitor placement depends on the objective function, ...  Read More

  From a steady state point of view, FACTS devices operate by increasing or decreasing voltage, supplying or absorbing reactive power, and controlling the impedance of a series of transmission lines or phase angles. There are two types of power fluctuation damping controllers in power systems: power system ...  Read More
