Simulation of power system response to reactive power compensation

by 1976- Bohe?me, Pierre Alexandre

Abstract (Summary)
The demand of power in the United States has doubled in the last decade. The constant increase in power flow has saturated the existing infrastructure. Modern advances in technology are changing the way utility industry increases the transmission of power throughout the country. Distributed Energy Resources are constantly improving their reliability and power capabilities. This thesis will simulate the response of the power system to reactive power injection. The testing will take place in the Reactive Power Laboratory at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The facility is an initiative by the U.S. Department of Energy to facilitate the development of new resource technologies. The simulation will include the use of a synchronous motor and an inverter as reactive power compensation devices. The model will be compared to actual measured data from which it will be used in planned contingency cases to study the response of the power system. v
