In this paper, the authors design a fuzzy logic controller for STATic synchronous COMpensator (STATCOM) to enhance interconnected power system stability. The power frequency model for STATCOM with conventional PI (Proportional Integral) controller is presented first. Fuzzy logic controller in then designed for main controller of the STATCOM. The main controller is used for regulating the AC bus voltage. The STATCOM is performing a significant role in reactive power compensation and transient stability enhancement in modern power systems.
