A New Method for Optimal Placement of TCSC Based on Sensitivity Analysis for Congestion Management
ABSTRACT
In this paper a new method has been proposed to determine optimal location and best setting of Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC). Seeking the best place is performed using the sensitivity analysis and optimum setting of TCSC is managed using the genetic algorithm. The configuration of a typical TCSC from a steady-state perspective is the fixed capacitor with a thyristor controlled reactor (TCR). The effect of TCSC on the network can be modeled as a controllable reactance inserted in the related transmission line. This paper employs the DIgSILENT simulator and the DPL as a programming tool of the DIgSILENT to show the validity of the proposed method. The effectiveness of sug-gested approach has been tested on IEEE 14-bus system.
