Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices and Voltage Source Converter (VSC) High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems have fast reactive power control capabilities which can be used to increase power system voltage stability. When located near a Line Commutated Converter (LCC) HVDC converter they can be used to support the performance of the LCC HVDC. This paper shows how well VSC HVDC, Static synchronous Compensation (STATCOM) and Static Var Compensators (SVC) are able to support LCC HVDC based on their improvement of the LCC HVDC Commutation Failure Immunity Index (CFII) and presents a comparison of their relative capabilities.
