In this paper, the authors present the transformer-less STATic shunt COMpensator (STATCOM) based on Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) topology. MMC based STATCOM have many feature over conventional voltage source converter like transformer-less operation, sub modular structure, low expensive due to un-necessity of filters, redundancy, fault tolerant operation, standard components are used, low PWM carrier frequency and quality of output waveforms. Due to the advantages of modular multilevel converter over other converter topology it is used as power stages in STATCOM.
