This paper highlights the concept of reactive power compensation technologies. By means of reactive power compensation techniques, reactive power is controlled in such a way that the performance of electric power system gets improved. This paper gives the brief idea about the principles of operation, design characteristics of various types of VAR compensators etc. These compensation techniques are used to change the performance of AC transmission & distribution systems as per the need. VAR compensators enhance the stability of the AC system by increasing the maximum active power that can be transmitted. By managing the line reactive power, the working of overall electric power system can be enhanced. In the case study, after implementing series and shunt compensation techniques in the system, results are shown for comparison.
