Abstract:

Existing of nonlinear loads and harmonic generation in electric power systems makes it prevalent to use harmonic filters. STATCOM plays an important role in eliminating harmonics and fixing the voltage using power electronics switches. Various control methods have been introduced for switching in a STATCOM. In this paper the Space Vector Modulation (SVM) is described and it is optimized by Genetic Algorithm (GA) to reduce the harmonic contents. At last, some simulations of power system with STATCOM have been done in MATLAB to prove the efficiency of the proposed switching method employed in a STATCOM. Results including voltage weighted THD show the proper performance of STATCOM using optimized SVM by GA.
