The STATCOM is a shunt connected voltage source converter using self-commutating device and can
be effectively used for reactive power control. Its principle of operation is similar to that of a synchronous condenser.
This paper describes the linear modeling of STATCOM along with design of current and voltage controllers. The
designed controllers with variation of DC-link voltage have been applied to the STATCOM and suitable DC-link
voltage has been selected on basis of spike and over shoot of the responses. The values of the passive parameters
decided on basis of selected DC-link voltage are used for the design and fabrication of a STATCOM. All responses
are obtained through MATLAB SIMULINK tool box and presented here for clarity of the control strategy.
