1031-2011 IEEE Guide for the Functional Specification of Transmission Static Var Compensators
This guide assists users in specifying the functional requirements for transmission static Var compensators (SVCs) using conventional thyristor technology. It will not serve for SVCs primarily associated with DC converters nor with the correction of load disturbances or phase unbalance. Nevertheless many sections will be useful for compensator systems using gate turn-off (GTO) thyristor technology [static compensator (STATCOM)] or other semiconductor devices, or SVCs associated with high-voltage dc (HVDC) converter stations, or industrial and distribution applications. General terms and conditions forming the commercial part of a specification for a particular project are outside the scope of this document.
