Analysis of the FACTS devices impact on the transmission line protection operation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The effect of the static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) on distance protection of a high-voltage transmission line is studied in this article. To carry out the research stated in the topic of the paper, an experimental scheme was developed, equipment was selected, the operation settings of the 3 stages of distance protection were calculated and quad characteristics were built on their basis. All listed above, as well as further experiments, were carried out by the real time digital simulator. The STATCOM model was integrated in the scheme and set next. A series of experiments was carried out: two-phase and three-phase short circuits in various nodes of the scheme with and without the compensator and in various connection nodes. After all the experiments were carried out, appropriate conclusions were made about the impact of FACTS devices on the operation of distance protection. Possible ways to solve detected problems were also proposed.
