Abstract. Fast compensation of voltage sag on the three-phase electric power caused by different faults is a problem studied to ensure that loads work normally. This paper introduces two vector control structures for Series synchronous static compensators (SSSC): the PI controller on the dq reference frame and the Sequence-decoupled resonant (SDR) controller on the αβ reference frame. An analysis was performed to compare the two control structures to evaluate their qualities and advantages. Based on that conclusion, we propose a solution to apply suitably to controllers of SSSC devices. The control structures are simulated in Matlab/Simulink. The simulation results verified our analyses and evaluations. From there, this paper presents a recommended control structure for SSSC.
