A novel approach in automatic control based on the genetic algorithm in STATCOM for improvement of voltage regulation


Static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is a shunt-connected converter. STATCOM regulates voltage in the transmission line by controlling the current rapidly. This article proposes a new STATCOM current controller for voltage regulation. The new method has been tested for a step increase in current reference. Capacitor Voltage of STATCOM can be controlled… (More)
