Dr. Subhashish Bhattacharya has been awarded $66,965 by the Hyosung Corporation towards STATCOM Controller Design and System Performance as a FACTS Device.

The award will run from July 1st, 2007 to December 31st, 2007.

Research Abstract - This project addresses all aspects of STATCOM control and evaluates its performance under various power system conditions. Reliable and satisfactory operation of STATCOM under system faults is imperative and when its reactive power support is required the most. The STATCOM controller design and its system level performance evaluation by simulation and hardware model will be verified. Converter aspects will also be investigated.
