Analysis of Power Electronics Technology and Reactive Compensation Technology of Power System

Zengxiang Yang, Kaipu Yuan


Rapid development of power electronics technology, successive emerging of new materials and new structural devices, and improvement of computer technology provide vigorous support for actual application of modern control technology. The researches on application of power electronics technology in power system become increasingly extensive and profound, thus enormously supporting and developing reactive compensation technology of power system. This article has discussed application and development of power electronics technology in power system, analyzed reactive power and harmonic wave in power system, briefly introduced the development and research of reactive compensation technology at home and abroad, intensively promoted the development and application of SVC device, and put forward a series of design solutions to lower avoidable energy loss of the whole power system.
