Static synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) is a commonly used FACTS devices and has been successfully applied in power systems. One of the most important functions of STATCOM is to improve power system stability. This purpose is obtained by application of a supplementary stabilizer on the STATCOM. In this way, a supplementary stabilizer is installed on the STATCOM and the function of this stabilizer is such as classical PSSs. In this study, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used to adjustment of STATCOM supplementary stabilizer. A multi machine power system with different loading conditions is considered as case study. Nonlinear time-domain simulations clearly show the ability of STATCOM in damping of power system oscillations and consequently stability improvement.
