SSR Implication Assessment Using Modular FACTS

The increase of distributed, non-conventional generation requires fast installation and low-cost solutions that improve power systems’ flexibility and reliability. Such a solution is series compensation of transmission lines. Despite its numerous benefits, this solution raises concerns related to Subsynchronous Resonance (SSR). Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices constitute an improved alternative compared to traditional series compensation solutions
