For transmission of large amounts of electric power, AC in the overwhelming majority of cases is the established as well as the most cost effective option at hand. In cases of long distance transmission, as in interconnection of power systems, care has to be taken for safeguarding of synchronism as well as stable system voltages in the interconnection, particularly for extreme load conditions and in conjunction with system faults. Use of Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) as Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) device brings a number of benefits for the user of the grid, all contributing to an increase of the power transmission capability of new as well as existing transmission lines. These benefits include improvement in system stability, voltage regulation, reactive power balance, load sharing between parallel lines and reduction in transmission losses.
