Abstract

Abstract– Modal interaction noticeably affects the dynamic behavior of a stressed power system
with heavy loading. In this paper, Modal Series (MS) as a method to analyze modal interactions is
extended for a power system installed with a static synchronous series compensator (SSSC)
stabilizer. The - based and m-based stabilizers as two stabilizers in different control channels are
presented for a SSSC. The parameters of the stabilizers are calculated by a quadratic mathematical
programming method. In this procedure, the gain and the phase of a stabilizer are calculated
simultaneously. A particular measure of stabilizer gain is considered as an objective function. The
effects of SSSC based stabilizers on damping inter-area oscillations for a small disturbance are
studied and compared. Modal interactions between an inter-area mode and control modes related
to SSSC stabilizers are studied by a proposed index based on MS method in a 4-machine stressed
power system. Oscillatory instability caused by modal interactions is investigated and compared in
the system for both SSSC stabilizers.
