Advantages of M-SSSC Devices over Traditional Series Compensation

Hunt Energy Solutions collaborated with Smart Wires to undertake a technical analysis of modular SSSC compared with traditional series compensation. PSCAD simulations run on the IEEE Second Benchmark Model demonstrated that modular SSSC solutions do not resonate at any frequency. Additional advantages of modular SSSC explored include: increased control capabilities, minimal impact on protection system, higher resiliency, reduced substation footprint, quicker deployment time, greater flexibility in deployment siting and optionality in future scalability and redeployability.
