Abstract: Interarea oscillations create problems like damage of generators, increase line losses, and increase wear and tear on network components. STATCOM is capable of damping such oscillation and it reduces all the above mentioned problems due to interarea oscillations. In this paper a new controlling technique that uses combination of STATCOM-SMES system is discussed to damp inter area oscillations in an effective manner.
