A static VAr compensator (SVC) is designed for compensation of a midsized three-phase unbalanced industrial load. The control system is programmed in the National Instruments LabView programming environment and implemented in an Intel based platform using National Instruments digital to analog conversion and timing hardware. The hardware design is done for a fixed capacitor-thyristor controlled reactor (FC-TCR) configuration of a static VAr compensator (SVC). The SVC controller is tested on both a real-time digital simulator (RTDS) and a physical hardware model.
