Abstract :

Electrical distribution systems are having large losses as the loads are wide spread, reactive power compensation facilities and their improper control. A comprehensive static VAR compensator consisting of capacitor bank in four binary sequential steps with a thyristor (SCR) controlled reactor of smallest step size is employed in the investigative work. This work deals with the performance evaluation through analytical studies and practical implementation on an existing system consisting of a distribution transformer of 1phase, 50Hz, 1KV/230V capacity. The PIC controller determines firing pulse of SCR to compensate excessive reactive power component for PF improvement. The switching operations achieved are transient free & practically no need to provide inrush current limiting reactors, TCR size minimum providing small percentages of harmonics, facilitates step less variation of reactive power depending on load requirement so as to maintain power factor near unity always.
