In Recent trends integration of Distributed Generation (DG) units in the distribution system is one of the major concerns for electrical power system. The voltage control for small DG units in the grid is kept in the standard limit. There is lack in reactive power support that brings the problem of slow recovery and it leads to the usage of expensive Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices such as static synchronous compensator (STATCOM). STATCOM has been placed at the bus which…

Maintaining Voltage Stability in Power System using FACTS Devices

Modern power systems are prone to widespread failures. With the increase in power demand, operation and planning of large interconnected power system are becoming more and more complex, so power

Overview of Control and Grid Synchronization for Distributed Power Generation Systems

An overview of the structures for the DPGS based on fuel cell, photovoltaic, and wind turbines is given and the possibility of compensation for low-order harmonics is discussed.

StatCom control at wind farms with fixed-speed induction generators under asymmetrical grid faults

Investigations on an FSIG-based wind farm in combination with a StatCom under unbalanced grid voltage fault are carried out by means of theory, simulations, and measurements, and the results clarify the effect of the positive- and the negative-sequence voltage compensation by aStatCom on the operation of theFSIG- based wind farm.

Unbalanced Grid Fault Ride-Through Control for a Wind Turbine Inverter

Large variable speed wind turbines with fully rated, direct-in-line converters are increasingly used as silicon cost continues to decline. While grid codes require wind turbines to ride-through grid


In this paper we find the optimal location of STATCOM in the IEEE 30 bus to minimize the value of voltage deviation. For finding the optimal location of STATCOM we use the evolutionary computational

Flexible control of small wind turbines with grid failure detection operating in stand-alone and grid-connected mode

This paper presents the development and test of a flexible control strategy for an 11-kW wind turbine with a back-to-back power converter capable of working in both stand-alone and grid-connection
