Reactive Compensator Synthesis in Time-Domain as an Alternative to Harmonic Method


The source reactive-current compensation is crucial in energy transmission efficiency. The compensator design in frequency-domain was already widely discussed and examined. This paper presents results of a study on how to design reactive compensators in time-domain. It’s the first time the reactive compensator have been designed in time domain. The example of compensator design was presented.
