Thyristor-Based FACTS Controllers for Electrical Transmission Systems
An important new resource for the international utility market
Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) technology is fast becoming a mainstay of modern electrical power systems. Thyristor-based controllers such as Static Var Compensator (SVC) and Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) constitute the key components of FACTS technology that have wide application potential around the world, especially in the restructured power system environment.
By integrating material from several publications in the available literature, this comprehensive reference book makes an elaborate presentation on:
Thyristor-based FACTS Controllers for Electrical Transmission Systems offers an in-depth discussion of both theoretical concepts and practical applications, enhanced by examples and case studies of control design and system performance. Filling the need for a comprehensive text in this area, the book will prove to be an important resource for academics, students, and practicing engineers involved in FACTS technology.
