HVDC and FACTS devices have been widely applied in power system for their excellent and flexible control ability. Their contributions to the damping of system oscillations are of great importance for achieving satisfactory system performance. However, previous experience has shown that there may be negative interactions among FACTS devices whose supplementary controllers are designed separately. This may deteriorate system performance and even make system unstable. The interactions of HVDC and SVC during system oscillation were analyzed in this paper. The coordinate supplementary damping controller for HVDC and SVC were then designed based on projective control principle. The criterion of synthetic residue is adopted in choosing the proper input wide area signals. Eigenvalue analysis and time domain simulations were performed on a two-area system and the results demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
