This thesis is concerned with the digital computer prediction of the performance of a 125MVA synchronous compensator during starting and synchronising to a power transmission system. Little work has been conducted in the past on synchronising problems, and the few studies reported discuss either synchronous motors or generators. Although basically similar machines, synchronous compensators have different design parameters to synchronous motors because of the duty that they are required to perform, and the starting and synchronising conditions can be quite different from those of synchronous motors. Therefore, application of studies of synchronous motors to synchronous, compensators may produce results of doubtful value. In the study described in this thesis, digital computer programs are developed to simulate the performance of a synchronous compensator using methods of analysis first developed by Park.
