SCI0 - FACTS and HVDC Stations

WGI2 – Thyristor Controlled Series Cap

Scope: Review Thyristor Controlled SeriesCapacitor (TCSC) applications and coordinate with other committees and organizations involved in the subject matter to identify the need for and sponsor the preparation of a functional guide for specifying TCSC stations. Included in the scope are issues which consider ratings for TCSC thyristor valve assemblies, capacitors, and reactors, as well as TCSC control characteristics, protective features, cooling systems, testing, commissioning, safety, operation and maintenance.

Standard: IEEE 1534-2009 – IEEE Recommended Practice for Specifying Thyristor-Controlled Series Capacitors
