Multi-machine Power Systems Installed with VSC-Based Stabilizers

Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


Without loss of generality, it can be assumed that a shunt VSC is installed at a busbar between nodes 1 and 2 in an N-machine power system, as shown in Fig. 7.1. The shunt VSC can be connected to an energy storage system (ESS ), a HVDC, or a static renewable power station, such as a photovoltaic (PV) or fuel cell (FC) power station. It can operate alone as a VSC-based FACTS device, STATCOM (see Sect.
