Abstract

The project is about the improvement of voltage stability of the system which has a wind farm connected to the Grid. A combination of TCSC and STATCOM is used in the controller. The controller ensures that the system receives enough reactive power to maintain stability. The simulation model is going to be inbuilt MATLAB/SIMULINK. output voltages of the system without the controller, with each component acting separately and the collaborative control effect of TCSC and STATCOM, will be compared and studied in the simulated model to prove the efficiency of the controller.
