  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery},
An analytical approach to harmonic analysis of a static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) based on Bessel functions of the first kind is described and a novel STATCOM controller with a fixed modulation index reference to minimize voltage and current harmonics is presented in this paper. Harmonic analysis of the STATCOM using the proposed analytical approach reveals that the total harmonic distortion of the STATCOM output voltage is minimal as the modulation index is fixed at unity at steady… CONTINUE READING
