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 stabilization (PSS) and FACTS POD controllers. The planning and operation condition of electrical power systems are changing due to a variety of causes. Flexible ac transmission system (FACTS) controller helps in raising dynamic stability limit and provide better power flow control. Static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) is one of the important members of series FACTS controller, which consists of a solid-state voltage source inverter coupled with a transformer that is connected in series with a transmission line. In this paper is presented the effect of SSSC for damping power system oscillation. The complete digital simulation is performed in the Matlab Simulink environment. .
