Generally, static var generators function as variable reactances (capacitive or inductive impedances) or controllable ac current and voltage sources. Possible methods of var generation and control by static thyristor circuits are reviewed, and new approaches are described in which power frequency changers (cycloconverters) are employed. Oscillographic recordings illustrate the operation and performance of practical systems, including a 35-Mvar arc furnace compensator.
