The paper reviews modeling of thyristor-controlled series capacitors (TCSC) which are highly nonlinear systems with continuous and discontinuous states, and proposes three nonlinear controllers for it: (1) An approximate feedback linearization control (FLC) (2) A sliding surface-like design (3) Control in transformed coordinates. Detailed (switched) time-domain simulations are used to verify the control performance achieved by the three controllers.
