A novel current injection model of PWMSC for control and analysis of power system stability
Iran University of Science and Technology, Center of Excellence for Power Automation and Operation, Department of Electrical Engineering, Tehran, Iran



This paper proposes a novel current injection model of Pulse width Modulation based Series Compensator (PWMSC), as new FACTS controller, for damping of low frequency oscillations. The PWMSC operates as a means of continuous control of the degree of series compensation through the variation of the duty cycle of a train of fixed frequency-pulses. The methodology is tested on the sample single machine power system including PWMSC controller by performing computer simulations for small and large distributions. MATLAB/ Simulink software package was used for the simulations.
