The project is designed to implement FACTS by TSR (Thyristor Switch Reactance). This method is used either when charging the transmission line or when there is very low load at the receiving end.

Due to very low or no load, very low current flows through the transmission line and shunt capacitance in the transmission line becomes dominant. This causes voltage amplification (Ferranti Effect) due to which receiving end voltage may become double than the sending ends voltage (generally in case of very long transmission lines). To compensate this, shunt inductors are automatically connected across the transmission line.

In this proposed system the lead time between the zero voltage pulse and zero current pulse duly generated by suitable operational amplifier are fed to two interrupt pins of the microcontroller, where the program takes over to bring the shunt reactors to the circuit to get the voltage duly compensated.

Back to back SCRs duly interfaced through optical isolation from the programmed microcontroller are used in series for switching the reactor (in our case a choke is used). The microcontroller used in the project is of 8051 family.

Further the project can be enhanced by using firing angle control methodology for smooth control of the voltage. Thus, this is better than switching reactors in steps where voltage control (also in steps) is not very precise.

Q & A
Q:  What is FACTS?
A:  FACTS or flexible AC transmission system involves use of power electronic devices to ensure smooth transmission of AC power by compensating the reactive power.
Q:  What is TSR?
A:  TSR stands for Thyristor Switched Reactor, switching appropriate number of Inductors in capacitive lines to improve power factor
Q:  Can inductance be increased?
A:  Yes, by increasing the wattage of bulb from 100 W to 200 W because the inductor is used in series with it.
Q:  Why is the lamp used in series with the inductor?
A:  Because a standard 40 watt tube light choke cannot be directly connected to mains, hence a lamp is used in series.

I got to know about edgefx through internet when i was searching for my project in google i got edgefx website.
Because there was no time to do the project and we have not decided the title of the project. So, edgefx helped me in finding the right project. I like discount and the way they interacted with me.
Yes, the kit was delivered on time.
According to me everything thing was good.

I was searching Sun Tracking Solar Panel and I find in the Google.
I found my project Title so decided to buy that project
I purchase through online

One of my friend suggested taking the kit from Edgefx.
I decided to buy from Edgefx because all our friends are buying from Edgefx. And I like the components, softcopy which i referred from my friends.
I directly placed order through online

One of my friend got project from here edgefx,that’s why i would like to select my project from edgefx.
According to my friend’s project,i was studied the soft copy materials and i likes it, that’s why i was ready to purchase this project.
purchased through online.
Good experience with your service.
