This paper presents the conclusion of extensive work aimed to verify the satisfactory performance of new equipment, the TCSC (Thyristor Controlled Series Compensation). From factory tests to commisioning tests and from real time simulations to digital program simulations with a validated model, two years of studies were spent to assure that the system control of this new equipment provides enough damping
for the inter-area oscillation mode of the interconnected North/Northeast and South/Southeast system. Such experience pointed out the importance of having good tools to represent the real behavior of any important equipment, especially when new knowledge is involved.
