Assisting users in specifying the functional requirements for transmission static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) systems using forced commutated technology based on voltage sourced converter topologies is the purpose of this guide. These systems may be hybrid,and also incorporate thyristor and mechanically switched inductors and capacitors. Reactive power compensation, voltage regulation and control, transient and dynamic stability, and control and protection are the functions included. Accepted engineering practices for the application of STATCOM systems are presented. Specifications, typical application requirements, engineering studies, main component characteristics, system functions and features, factory testing, commissioning, and operations are covered. Informative annexes that allow users to develop or modify specific clauses to meet the requirements of a particular transmission system application are included.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
