The operating and performance characteristics of two basic types of static, thyristor-controlled shunt compensators, one with a fixed capacitor bank and the other with synchronously switchable capacitor banks, are presented with regard to power transmission system applications. The operating principles, and the similarities and differences between the performance of the two schemes are discussed in the areas of steady-state voltage versus VAR characteristic, behavior under small and large system disturbances, harmonic generation, and loss versus output VAR characteristic.
