In this paper, a controller for a thyristor switched series capacitor (TSSC) is presented. The controller aims to stabilize the power system by damping interarea power oscillations and by improving the transient stability of the system. In addition to this, a power flow control feature is included in the controller. The power oscillation damping controller is designed based on a nonlinear control law, while the transient stability improvement feature works in open loop. The damping controller is adaptive and estimates the power system parameters according to a simplified generic model of a two-area power system. It is designed for systems where one poorly damped dominant mode of power oscillation exists. In the paper, a verification of the controller by means of digital simulations of one two-area, four-machine power system, and one 23-machine power system is presented. The results show that the controller improves the stability of both test systems significantly in a number of fault cases at different levels of interarea power flow.
