Scope of Project

This project will involve the creation of a static VAR compensator (SVC) to ensure that the voltage measured is within a specified limit. Control elements, protective elements and monitoring devices will be implemented in this project. The project should be created in a modular fashion. A SVC handling a lower voltage level (120V) will be designed and implemented. Once this SVC has been created, larger more robust SVC’s can be modeled accordingly. Attempts will be made to minimize harmonic contributions to the local power system.
