Voltage stability of a system is affected by reactive power limit of the system. FACTs devices improve the reactive power flow in system thereby improving voltage stability and these are used for controlling transmission voltage, Power flow, dynamic response and reducing reactive losses in transmission lines. This paper explores the effect of SVC on static voltage stability and presents the effect of Static VAR compensator (SVC) on Voltage Profile & Reactive Power for variable load conditions is investigated and presents static methods like Modal Analysis, Two Bus Thevenin Equivalent and Continuation Power Flow methods to predict the voltage collapse of the bus in the power system. WSCC 3-machine, 9-bus system has been used to demonstrate the ability of SVC in improving the voltage stability margin. These FACTs controllers help to increase the load ability margin of the power network. Modelling & simulation have been carried out using MATLAB/SIMULINK Software.
