Abstract
With increased smart upgrading and reconstruction of power grid in China, typical representative of the third generation dynamic reactive power compensation technology, i.e. STATCOM(SVG), has been used widely in power transmission and distribution network all over China with good economic and social benefits. Yet restricted by the power device, existing STATCOM generally requires a large number of IGBTs for operation at load center substation (above 330kV). Due to high construction cost and many hidden troubles, people begin to seek new power device. This paper firstly lists those power devices used for STATCOM in recent years, conducts contrast analysis on their advantages and disadvantages at 35kV voltage level from the viewpoints of economic level and loss level, and provides reference for designers.
