Design, implementation and engineering aspects of tcr for industrial svc systems

Mutluer, Halas Bilge
Design and implementation of TCR (Thyristor Controlled Reactor) for industrial SVC (Static VAr Compensator) systems require special design. Both power stage and control system design and implementation are thoroughly investigated in this thesis. Engineering aspects of TCR design are emphasized and supported with case studies. As the first case study; a novel, unified and relocatable SVC for open cast lignite mining in Turkey is designed, implemented and commissioned. The second case study is the first 12 pulse TCR design and implementation for ladle furnace compensation in the world. The SVC simulation results are verified by data acquired in the field. Real time data are also simulated in EMTDC/PSCAD program to verify the control system responses of the commissioned systems.
