Abstract: An increasing demand for high quality, reliable electrical power and increasing number of distorting loads may leads to an increased awareness of power quality both by customers and utilities. The most common power quality problems today are voltage sags, harmonic distortion and low power factor. This paper presents the reduction of voltage sags, using Distribution Static Compensator (D-STATCOM) with LCL Passive Filter in Distribution system. The model is based on the Voltage Source Converter (VSC) principle. D-STATCOM can use with different types of controllers. The D-STATCOM injects a current into the system to mitigate the voltage sags. LCL Passive Filter Was then added to D-STATCOM to improve harmonic distortion and low power factor. The simulations were performed using MATLAB SIMULINK.
