In this paper, a static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) is used to study the effect of this device in controlling active and reactive powers as well as damping power system oscillations in transient mode. The SSSC equipped with a source of energy in the DC link which can supply or absorb the reactive and active power to or from the line. Simulations have been done in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment in a simple hypothetical test system. Simulation results obtained for selected bus-2 in two machine power system shows the efficacy of this compensator as one of the FACTS devices member in controlling power flows, achieving the desired value for active and reactive powers, and damping oscillations appropriately.
