The transmission of electrical energy using AC started at the end of the 19th century and replaced smaller existing local DC distribution systems. By extending local supply areas and providing energy transfer over longer distances various problems regarding mainly voltage control and stability were observed caused mainly by reactive power unbalances in the systems. Switched reactive power compensation (shunt capacitors, shunt reactors) were primarily used to control the steady state system… CONTINUE READING
