An innovative series connected power flow controller, Magnetic Energy Recovery Switch (MERS)

A new power flow controller called the magnetic energy recovery switch (MERS) has been investigated. It consists of four active switches per phase and a dc-capacitor. The MERS is capable of injecting zero to rated voltage within the current rating. The device can from a power flow control point of view be regarded as a capacitive reactance in series with a… CONTINUE READING
