A thyristor-based static transfer switch (STS) provides a continuous supply for a voltage sensitive load through fast transfer between two sources when the main source does not meet load voltage requirements. This paper investigates the impact of phase difference between the corresponding voltages of the two sources on the load transfer performance achieved by an STS. The studies are performed on the IEEE benchmark STS-1 system using the power system computer-aided design/electromagnetic… CONTINUE READING
