This paper describes the application of static var compensators, (SVC) on an electrical distribution network containing two large synchronous motors, one of which is excited via a three-phase thyristor bridge rectifier. The second machine is excited via a diode bridge rectifier. Based on linear optimization control (LOC), the measurable feedback signals are applied to the control system loops of SVC and the excitation control loop of the first synchronous motor. The phase equations method was used to develop a computer program to model the distribution network. Computer results were obtained to demonstrate the system performance for some abnormal modes of operation. These results show that employing SVC based on the LOC design for electrical distribution networks containing large synchronous motors is beneficial and may be considered a first stage of the system design.
