This Paper presents the orientation procedure for diagnosing the power quality problems in different fault occurring conditions by using Distribution STATCOM (D- STATCOM) with non-linear loads. This modelling and simulation of D-STATCOM is achieved by using voltage regulation block. The major problem is that, during fault conditions there is a probable disturbance in the load side and this problem is diagnosing by utilizing the D-STATCOM at load side, as well as in between source and load. D-STATCOM is developed using MATLAB simulation program. The model is simulated, first without DSTATCOM and then with it. The results obtained in both the cases are analyzed and which shows the effectiveness of tracking the voltage sag and its correction.
