Studies on a Probe into Reactive Power Management in Renewable Energy System Using Facts Devices

In the modern era, most of the utility grid is connected with Renewable Energy resources (RERs).
Many of the power electronic converters and reactive power compensating devices are also
incorporated into the existing grid making the system more complicated. The penetration of renewable
energy resources may affect grid stability, quality of power, reactive power balance and Sufficient
energy utilization. The Distributed Generation (DG) towards the power electronic interface creates
some critical power quality events such as reactive power management, harmonics and voltage
profile which makes the distributed system become a polluted one. The hiking demand for decarbonized energy supply leads to generate more distribution networks. This paper depicts the review of modelling and incorporation of various reactive power compensating devices like TCSC, SVC and STATCOM into RES. Power generation model of solar, wind and fuel farm is discussed in this paper. Reactive power compensating devices and its location and sizing are important for the stable and secure operation of the electric grid. Consequently, power quality issues, real-time interconnection issues and policies related to reactive power management are in this paper.
