Impact Analysis of DSSC on Distance Relay Performance under Fault Conditions


This paper demonstrates the impact analysis of the Distributed Static Series Compensator (DSSC), on the performance of distance relay protection of high voltage transmission lines. The concept of DSSC model with its control circuit and distance relay are described. A five bus test system with DSSC and distance relay is designed with the help of MATLAB/SIMULINK software. The impact of DSSC on distance protection relay for different fault conditions and various fault locations is analyzed. The results of simulation show that the connection of DSSC in the transmission system changes the transmission line impedance greatly as estimated by the distance relay to be less or greater than the actual impedance in fault conditions. Hence, the distance relay performance changes, either over reaches or under reaches.
