Reactive Power Compensation Device


1. Development history of reactive power compensation device


Devices used for reactive power compensation and harmonic control, such as: passive power filter, this device has both reactive power compensation and voltage regulation functions, and is generally specially designed according to the parameters of the harmonic source, the electrical characteristics of the installation point, and user requirements ; Static Var Compensator (SVC) device is an important device for comprehensively controlling voltage fluctuations and flicker, harmonics and voltage unbalance. Active power filter (APF), APF is a new type of power electronic device that dynamically suppresses harmonics and compensates reactive power. It can compensate harmonics and reactive currents that change in frequency and amplitude. The main application in low-voltage power distribution systems.


Among them, the development of reactive power compensation technology has gone through several different stages from synchronous condenser → switch switching fixed capacitor → static var compensator (SVC) → striking static var generator SVG (STATCOM).


According to different structural principles, SVC technology is divided into: self-saturated reactor type (SSR), thyristor phase-controlled reactor type (TCR), thyristor switched capacitor type (TSC), high impedance transformer type (TCT) and excitation control The reactor type (AR).


With the development and improvement of power electronics technology, especially high-power turn-off device technology, a more advanced static var compensation device static var power generator (SVG) is still being developed at home and abroad, although They are still in the stage of development and trial operation, and have not yet been commercialized, but SVG will be more and more widely used in power systems due to its superior performance characteristics.


2. Characteristics of reactive power compensation device


The characteristics of various reactive devices are as follows:

2.1 Synchronous condenser: slow response, high noise, high loss, outdated technology, and an obsolete technology;


2.2 Switching and switching fixed capacitors: slow response compensation method, poor continuous controllability;


2.3 Static Var Compensator (SVC): Relatively advanced and practical technology, it has been widely used in power transmission and distribution power systems;


2.4 Static var generator SVG (STATCOM): Although it has technical limitations and belongs to the stage of a few demonstration projects, SVG is a more advanced new static var compensation device and is a flexible and flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) An important part of technology and custom power (CP) technology, the development direction of modern reactive power compensation devices.


3. Considerations of reactive power compensation device

3.3 Reactive power demand

If the proportion of inductive load in the power distribution system is large, the reactive power demand will be large, and the compensation capacity should be increased.


3.4 Load changes

If there are many static loads in the power distribution system, static compensation is used, and if there are frequent changes in loads, dynamic tracking compensation is more appropriate.


3.5 Three-phase balance

In the power distribution system, if the three-phase load is balanced, three-phase co-compensation is used, and if the three-phase load is unbalanced, phase-separated compensation or mixed compensation is used.
