Fault Analysis in Power System by using Fuel Cell as STATCOM

D. Sarathkumar


Today’s power industry faces lot of problem in maintaining the voltage stability and system stability. Installation of compensating devices proves to be a solution. But the cost of compensating devices adds burden to the consumer consumption changes. Hence, a new method of utilizing fuel cell a renewable energy source as a compensating device is proposed in this work. Fuel cell is modelled as Staic Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM)-a FACTS compensating device. The ability of the fuel cell based STATCOM in improving the system voltage stability and transient stability after a fault condition is also done in MATLAB simulink environment
