• Let us assume that the series compensator is represented by an ideal voltage source.



  • Schematic diagram of an ideal series compensated system is shown in Fig.1.



  • Let us further assume that the series compensator is ideal, i.e., it only supplies reactive power and no real power to the system.



  • It is needless to say that this assumption is not valid for practical systems. However, for an introduction, the assumption is more than adequate.
