This paper describes the effects of resistor added to thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) on damping power system oscillations. A new analytical model has been developed to consider the resistive component of TCSC circuit including the damping resistor. A modified TCSC for damping power system oscillations was proposed. Performances of the modified TCSC were examined using the analytical model.
