SIMULATION ANALYSIS OF DC VOLTAGE CONTROL STRATEGY OF THE CASCADED STATCOM
The cascade STATCOM is for performing reactive power exchange with the distribution network through dynamically varying the amplitude and phase of the output voltage, with the function of controlling the reactive current of the load when the voltage is present. On the basis of reactive current control, the stratified STATCOM main task is to perform the capacitor voltage control on the DC side of the H-bridge converter unit to meet the normal operating requirements. This article will discuss and present the STATCOM cascade DC voltage control strategy.
