1052 - IEEE Draft Guide for the Functional Specifications for Transmission Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) Systems

The purpose of this guide is to assist users in specifying the functional requirements for Transmission Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) Systems using forced commutated technology based on Voltage Sourced Converter topologies. These systems may be hybrid and also incorporate thyristor and mechanically switched inductors and capacitors. The functions provided include reactive power compensation, voltage regulation and control, transient and dynamic stability, and control and protection. The guide presents accepted engineering practices for the application of STATCOM systems. It covers specifications, typical application requirements, engineering studies, main component characteristics, system functions and features, factory testing, commissioning, and operations. It includes informative annexes that allow users to develop or modify specific clauses to meet the requirements of a particular transmission system application.
