A Procedure for Placing Shunt Reactors in High-Voltage Networks and Justification of its Efficiency
Keywords:energy systems, FACTS device, power balance, fuzzy Logic, active and reactive power flow control
In recent years, the controlled shunt reactor (CSR), a type of FACTS device, has been widely used to regulate voltage and reactive power flows in the high-voltage electrical network. The selection of location and the determination of the law of CSR control under the stochastically variable operation of high-voltage power transmission lines are associated with numerous technical and economic factors. At the same time, one should take into account such limiting conditions as ease of use, performance, purpose, and location in the system, as well as the time of commissioning. In the proposed procedure, these factors are considered as fuzzy constraints.
