VOLTAGE STABILITY PROBLEManalysis. These techniques allow to create different scenarios Each node of a power system initially operates with a voltagethat include contingencies or normal operation states in order stability margin as shown in Fig. 1(a). Once a contingencyto determine the variables behavior and response of power occurs, voltage decreases to a stable point as shown in Fig.system elements in the occurrence of an event [10]. 1(b) or it becomes unstable as shown in Fig. 1(c).

They can be used as a tool for the on-line and off-line voltage stability detection and prediction III. SOLUTION OF VOLTAGE STABILITYThe methods used for the solution of the voltage stability arebased on the prevention and correction of the problem.Prevention methods are aimed at maintaining voltagestability at all nodes, avoiding them to get close to the limit;correction methods are aimed at restoring the unstableconditions to return voltage stability to the nodes. Thesemethods are divided in: reactive compensation, control ofelements and power system changes. Control actions can beautomatic or manual and must be used according to the timeof response to improve in a short, middle or long-termstability.1) Reactive Compensation: these techniques are based on thecompensation of reactive power to the system, from powergeneration sources [11], transmission lines [12], transformers Fig. 1.

The line compensation can be carriedout with a constant value of reactive power, called static Line compensation using FACTS devices compared withcompensation, using switched elements to increase the other techniques, allows a fast response after disturbances,voltages at the nodes; also, a variable compensation can be allows reactive power injection, does not change the systemcarried out, controlled by power electronic devices as configuration or sheds loads, does not interfere with theFACTS; this is called dynamic compensation and is used to availability of generators and can change the direction of therespond during transitory and small signal variations that power flow from one area to another.
