A static condenser is an advanced static VAR compensator (SVC) using voltage source power converters with capacitors connected on the DC side. It has several advantages over both rotating synchronous condensers and variable impedance type SVCs and is expected to make a major breakthrough in reactive power control in electric utility systems. This paper presents the mathematical modelling and analysis of a static condenser. The control parameters are based on eigenvalue analysis and the performance evaluated from digital simulation. The results from a case study show the benefits of static condensers in improving power system stability and thereby increasing the power transfer in the line
