, sitting the TCSC at the midpoint causes overvoltage at a degree of
compensation greater than 0.5. For distributed TCSCs, a degree of compensation greater 0.5 can
be obtained and the maximumdegreeofcompensation depends upon the number of TCSCs. For
case # 2, the best position has been found to be at the load end. In addition to the two study cases,
a relation between the number of the distributed TCSCs and the maximumdegreeofcompensation
has been developed.
