Due to the increment in load demand, the power systems have experienced continuous changes in their configuration. There are increment in the existent interconnections and the use of faster controls. Although the addition of these new elements to the system is to result in a more economic and reliable operation, they have also contributed to low voltage stability in the power transmission network. Thus, Static synchronous compensator or STATCOM is installed to overcome this problem. This project has the purpose of using STATCOM to improve the power flow performance in a transmission network employing PSCAD Software. The basic principle and theory of FACTS controller and STATCOM are discussed. While the simulations of 5-bus system of various cases are analyzed to show the role of STATCOM in improving voltage stability using the PSCAD EMTDC software.
