Abstract: The power demand is increasing globally at a higher rate than the possible increase in the generation. The increased demand requierements put additional burdon on the existing transmission lines and sometimes burdoned beyond their power carrying capacities. Increase in power demand either due modernization of power system, industrialization leads to congestion problem and abruptly affects the stable and reliable operation of power system. Redesign and reconstruction of power system according to load requirements everytime is not an economical and viable solution. Other possible solution to the problem is use of FACTS devices. The use of FACTS devices the problems like increase in load demand, high losses in transmission line and dip in receiving end voltage can be eliminated or easily tackeled. In this paper, Static Synchronous Series Compensator as one of FACTS device has been used for improvement of voltage profile of different buses and power carrying capacity of the transmission lines. The main objective of this paper is to make a comparative investigation between compensated and uncompensated power system in terms of enhancement of power carrying capacity with low losses and improvement of voltage profiles of buses in the transmission network. The performance of uncompensated power system has been compared with compensated power system with the use of MATLAB/ Simulink software.
Keywords: Flexible alternating current transmission system, static synchronous series compensator, power carrying capacity, available transfer capacity.
