This Paper shows one of the possibilities to use Vacuum Circuit Breakers (VCBs) in flexible AC transmission systems in the High-Voltage Grid. A mechanically switched reactor, which is series connected to a TCSC in order to enhance the inductive working range is investigated. VCBs are used as switching elements as they can be switched more often without… CONTINUE READING
