Authors(3) :-Chandan S. Kamble, Dipesh Suryawanshi, Rajni Rewatkar

The performance of the STATCOM reactive power control system is powerful and robust can open the opportunities in the field of renewable energy system to make them more reliable and efficient. Wind generation is currently the major form of new renewable, generation in the world. The active power mainly depends upon the potential of the wind power produced and wind turbine generator design whereas the reactive power demand on the other hand depends upon conversion devices and recovered power quality fed to the grid. The wind farms which accesses to power grid cause fluctuations and reactive power redistribution and sometimes lead to voltage collapse. Similarly, the dynamic voltage stability is a major challenge faced by distribution network operators. The proposed scheme contains modeling of wind turbine DFIG and STATCOM for development of sophisticated control system. Because of uncertainty of wind and environmental condition, monitoring of the voltage profile is done easily.Modeling of wind turbine (DFIG) generation with the control circuitry as to get synchronised with the STATCOM and Capacitor Bank demonstrated using MATLAB/Simulink environment.
