The role of compensation in power system efficiency optimization is to reduce the power consumption of the source (line) impedance, so that most of the source power is delivered to the load. A classical result by Fryze is used in the case when the voltage drop across the line is negligible in comparison with the load voltage. An optimal solution considering significant line impedance has been already obtained in recent works. Unfortunately, the implementation results rather impractical. This motivates our approach in searching for a sub-optimal easy-to-implement solution that relies only on measurements of the load voltage and current so as to allow precise control of the real power delivered to the compensated load as well as the real power flowing out of the compensator, while reducing line losses to within a few percent of its theoretical minimum.
