The innovative combination of conventional fixed series capacitors and thyristor-controlled reactors as a flexible AC transmission (FACTS) device commenced commercial operation in 1992. This advanced series compensation (ASC) system offers several advantages in comparison with conventional fixed series capacitors. This new technology achieves additional system flexibility by direct power flow control, continuous control of the compensation level and improved capacitor bank protection. Further advantages include control of transmission line overload conditions, and subsynchronous resonances (SSR) mitigation. Intensive transient network analyser and field tests proved the ASC behaviour predicted by digital studies
