%T Providing Additional Advantages for STATCOM in Power Systems by Integration of Energy Storage Device
%V 105
%X The use of Flexible AC Transmission System
(FACTS) devices in a power system can potentially overcome
limitations of the present mechanically controlled transmission
system. Also, the advance of technology makes possible to include
new energy storage devices in the electrical power system. The
integration of Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES)
into Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) can lead to
increase their flexibility in improvement of power system dynamic
behaviour by exchanging both active and reactive powers with power
grids. This paper describes structure and behaviour of SMES,
specifications and performance principles of the STATCOM/SMES
compensator. Moreover, the benefits and effectiveness of integrated
SMES with STATCOM in power systems is presented. Also, the
performance of the STATCOM/SMES compensator is evaluated
using an IEEE 3-bus system through the dynamic simulation by
PSCAD/EMTDC software.
