Abstract
This paper proposes the energy function of a power system with a Static Synchronous Series
Compensator (SSSC). They make it possible for the direct method to acquire the transient stability
or critical clearing time assessment of a power system. The proposed energy function of a power
system with a SSSC is first derived and then it is used for SSSC control design. The proposed
method is tested on the single machine infinite bus (SMIB) and multimachine system.
