The transmission lines congesting or overloading are always a challenge for utilities protection engineers. As a result, a series compensating capacitors are being used to alleviate the transmission lines, and increased the loads capability. However, adding series compensating capacitors (SCC) to the transmission lines will increase the potential risk of subsynchronous resonance (SSR). In fact, SSR leads to a possible torsional interaction and damage the turbine generator shaft when the mechanical frequency falls below the electrical frequency. In this paper, a brief analysis of SSR phenomenon will be addressed by computing the eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and MATLAB/Simulink for simulation incorporated with the IEEE first and second benchmark Model # 1 system.

The growing demand of electricity in a large cities increase the need of high power transmission from remote generating stations. Therefore, for reducing the cost-effective in power transmission, series compensating capacitor (SSC) is used to
