Network-Wide Influence of a STATCOM Configured for Voltage Unbalance Mitigation
© 2019 IEEE. This letter proposes an analytical approach to estimate local and the network wide influence of a static compensator (STATCOM), configured for voltage unbalance (VU) mitigation. In addition, it provides guidelines for determining the most appropriate location for active mitigation. The proposed generalised formulation is able to demonstrate the VU mitigation provided by a STATCOM regardless of the control strategy used or the network conditions.
