Steady -State and Dynamic Performance of the Static Var Compensator (SVC) Phasor Model
A static var compensator (SVC) is used to regulate voltage on a 500 kV, 3000 MVA system. When system voltage is low the SVC generates reactive power (SVC capacitive). When system voltage is high it absorbs reactive power (SVC inductive). The SVC is rated +200 Mvar capacitive and 100 Mvar inductive. The Static Var Compen-sator block is a phasor model representing the SVC static and dynamic characteristics at the system fundamental frequency.
