The novel thyristor voltage regulator (TVR) for power distribution lines is discussed. It has faster response time, lighter weight, and higher maintainability compared with the existing TVR's. The newly developed “jumping-tap method” demonstrated high-speed response of 0.1 second. Thanks to this method, a big voltage disturbance caused by motor starting, for example, could be compensated. Reverse power flow cause judgement is discussed.
