Sajjad Golshannavaz; Daryoush Nazarpour

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2015, Pages 1-8

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2015.70066

Abstract
  Encountering series-compensated transmission lines, sub-synchronous resonance (SSR) may strike the power system by jeopardizing its stability and mechanical facilities. This paper aims to verify the capability of static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) in mitigating the mechanical and electrical ...  Read More
