A new switched inductor VAR compensator


A new circuit configuration for the generation of both reactive power and harmonic current is presented. Unlike Thyristor Controlled Reactors (TCR), the voltage across an inductor is pulse–width modulated in such a way to produce the required line current. In this presentation the switched inductor is producing lagging reactive power. In conjunction… (More)
