Abstract

This paper describes various power quality problems in distribution systems and their using application of Distribution Static Compensator (D-STATCOM). Here DSTATCOM uses as shunt active power filter system to mitigate harmonics which is created by nonlinear loads. Generally, a distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM) has been used for, reactive current compensation, harmonic current mitigation and load balancing are necessary in distribution system. This paper is aimed to improve power quality and harmonics distortion mitigation. This paper includes the detail discussion and configuration on the recently developed control scheme for DSTATCOM. The all schemes have been implemented using Matlab simulink toolbox and tested on various cases. The simulation results are presented, and discussed for various strategies.
