Nowadays static reactive power compensator or Static Var System (SVS) has been widely used in power systems to improve the stability of the system voltages as well as the stability under small and large disturbances. The primary function of SVS is to maintain a substantially constant voltage of its installed bus by generating or absorbing the required amount of reactive power, which also benefits to the reactive power balance of the power system.
