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.
