Abstract

Nowadays, the electrical systems require new flexible AC transmission systems; they allow the implementation of new reactive control and flexibility with the short circuit currents, with modern control systems. This paper develops the design of a magnetically controlled reactor (MCR) system, with a case study for design and application in the Peruvian power system. The dynamics analysis and faults considerations are important points for new projects in a real power system. The MCR could be applied in the power systems, instead of a static var compensator (SVC) or static synchronous compensator (STATCOM), besides the Transient Restoration Voltage is eliminated in the case of shunt reactors in power lines for the circuit breakers degradation. The main characteristics, constraints and benefits are developed in this research.

Gerente de Proyectos/PM - Subestaciones e Interconexión en Enel Green Power Chile y Países Andinos. Colombian electrical engineer, with experience in international power system project coordination, solid knowledge in analysis of Electrical Systems, Transmission Lines & Generation systems. I have implemented the Supervisory, Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) for mining, power and distribution systems. My team and I have designed the implementation and operation of RTU ( Remote Terminal Units) and we also have designed power lines and substation protection and control Systems. I have accomplished delivering operational improvements trough teamwork and project management. I am highly committed to creating effective solutions to meet challenging targets, always driven by high efficiency and superior quality. I also have worked in control and automation systems in Indra Colombia (installation, automation and configuration of equipment in the operations control center for tunnels and highways) and I have worked in international large-scale power transmission projects in Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Spain and Chile, which have been productive from the economic and technical standpoint for the companies where I worked. I have developed very strong influencing and communication skills. The continuous team's coordination has been essential to my success both externally with clients & partners and internally with the stakeholders. I am motivated by continuous learning and I do believe in creating a continuous improvement culture. I have worked in researching Dynamics and Operation of Power Systems & I have pertained to Transmission networks group, accredited by COLCIENCIAS, from January 2006 to July 2010.
