Problem statement: The critical clearing time provides very important role of the robustness in power system. The Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) has been accepted to be equipped in series with modern power system. This study presents the method to evaluate the Critical Clearing Time (CCT) of the system equipped with a SSSC. Approach: The parameter on SSSC is modeled in energy function. The presented energy function is applied to determine CCT of the system. The verification of the proposed method is tested on sample system. Results: The maximum generator rotor angle of the faulted system without a SSSC is continuously oscillation and the maximum value is much more than the system with a SSSC. Conclusion: SSSC based the proposed nonlinear control can damp power system oscillation.
