This paper presents the planning and pre-specification study analysis and results for the joint use of static VAr compensators (SVC), a form of flexible alternating current transmission system (FACTS) technology, for the Mead-Adelanto and Mead-Phoenix projects in the Southwestern USA. Because of insufficient system damping in the network, addition of these two transmission line projects must also be complemented by SVC. These devices increase the system stability limit so that the projects' planned transfer capabilities can be economically attained. These are the first transmission projects in the region where a very closely coordinated planning effort permits the joint use of SVC to provide mutual benefits to both projects. SVC dynamic performance enhancement studies, SVC control analysis, and studies related to the planning and specification requirements are among the topics addressed in the paper
