The connection of wind turbines to power system could lead to drop power quality especially in weak point of system. So power system planner investigated this as a main problem and tried to mitigate this effect using new technologies. FACT devises are main solution for this kind of problem in power system. This paper focuses on the utilizing STATCOM for power quality improvement due to connection of wind turbines as a main source of renewable energy to distribution system for meet demand side of system.
This situation can be improved using some of custom power devices technology. In this paper STATCOM is connected at point of common coupling to improve the power quality.
