Problem statement: FACTS devices play a major role in the efficient operation of the complex power system. FACTS devices such as STATCOM, SSSC and IPFC are in increasing usage. With energy storage systems they have a good control over the real as well as reactive power compensation and transient stability improvement. The design of controller for the SSSC with SMES system is analyzed in this study. Approach: The main variables to be controlled in the power system for efficient operation are the voltage, phase angle and impedance. A SSSC is a series connected converter based FACTS control which can provide a series reactive power compensation for a transmission system. With the addition of energy storage device, in addition to the reactive power compensation the real power exchange is also accomplished. Fuzzy logic controller is designed for the efficient operation of the power system with SSSC integrated with energy storage device. From the power reference the current reference is calculated and the error and change in error in the current are calculated in the controller. Results: A three phase to ground fault is simulated in the test system. A comparative analysis of the PI and fuzzy logic control of SSSC with energy storage system for the rotor angle oscillation damping following the disturbance is done. Conclusion: The fuzzy logic controller works efficiently compared to the conventional PI controller for the SSSC with SMES system. Also with energy storage system in the FACTS devices, the efficient operation of the power system is possible.
