Voltage and var solutions for highly compensated power systems
The voltage/var problems associated with serving urban areas that import large shares of power during peak load hours have slowly been gaining recognition by the international electric power community. Affected urban areas have often been geographically distant; hence, they may not have been aware of similar problems faced by other areas and thought their situation was unique. There is a clear need for broader awareness of this voltage/var issue and possible solutions.
