Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) may be caused by the fast switching of thyristors and gate turn-off thyristors (GTOs), which are used in static var compensators (SVCs) and static synchronous compensators (STATCOMs) to control reactive power generation and absorption to and from the transmission system. As a result, high levels of electrical disturbance may be coupled into the electrical ports of auxiliary electronic equipment, and if the levels are above the immunity level of the equipment, maloperation that may lead to a trip can occur. This study sought to measure typical conducted EMI levels in four selected SVC-based and one static synchronous compensator (STATCOM)-based substation. The results and their correlation to the existing IEC 61000-4 EMC Standards series are discussed, and indications of changes to the immunity tests are presented.
