Thyristor control reactor (TCR)
- Thyristor control reactor (TCR) is an important component of static var compensation (SVC).SVC systems provide dynamic power compensation for utilities and industry networks. The main benefits include dynamic voltage support, improvement of system stability, power oscillation series, reactive power balancing, flicker control and reduction of losses. SVC normally consists of a combination of thyristor-controlled reactor (TCR), thyristor-switched capacitors and reactor (TSC and TSR), mechanically-switched capacitor banks (MSC) and harmonic filters (HF). TCR is capable to change the reactive power capacity and to maintain the stability of voltage dynamically.
