Distance relay, MATLAB, STATCOM


Legacy Transmission system protection schemes are mainly based on distance relaying. However, performance of distance relay is affected in presence of shunt Flexible AC Transmission System Devices (FACTS) like Static synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) which are mostly used to enhance the transferring capacity of transmission system. The study about the protection system like transmission protection by using Distance Relay Specially mho relay and its zone wise tripping characteristics. The detailed idea about FACTS, type of FACTS, Advantages of FACTS and application of FACTS. For various purpose like power handling capacity by injecting or absorbing reactive power. The STATCOM has adverse effect on protection like distance protection ,distance relay mal-function when STATCOM is connected to the Line, when STATCOM is in fault loop then have a great impact on relay tripping characteristics. Distance relay simulation in MATLAB plays an important role.
