Effect of DC capacitor size on D-STATCOM voltage regulation performance evaluation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper describes the modelling and simulation of distribution static compensator (D-STATCOM) focused with effect of DC capacitor size and voltage regulation. Different capacitor values have been investigated to reduce the load ripple voltage during the charging and discharging of the capacitor. The optimum capacitor valuse has been determined to obtained the lowest ripple voltage within the rage of 8%. Capacitive and inductive mode of D-STATCOM operation have been also investigated and obtained results proved that the capability of the D-STATCOM in regulating the system voltage is near to the rated value of 1.0 p.u.
