Transient Stability Enhancement and Critical Clearing Time Improvement for Kurdistan Region Network using Fact Configuration
The Electrical power system has become vast and more complex, so it is subjected to sudden changes in load levels. Stability is an important concept which determines the stable operation of the power system. Transient stability analysis has become one of the significant studies in the power system to ensure the system stability to withstand a considerable disturbance. The effect of temporary occurrence can lead to malfunction of electronic control equipment. The application of flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) devices in the transmission system have introduced several changes in the power system. These changes have a significant impact on the power system protection, due to differences inline impedance, line current and voltage. On the distance relaying protection system to identify essential issues that protection engineers need to consider during the stages of design and operation of the protection system. Transient analysis can be conducted using a simulation software package. One of the commercial simulation software package used by industry worldwide is Siemens Power System Simulation for Engineering (PSS/E). The object of this work is to improve the Transient stability and to clear critical fault times of the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG) network by using optimal FACTS devices in different optimal locations under fault conditions.
