Non Linear Loads in the Power System are the Source of production of harmonics, due to the harmonics in system power quality get decreases and affect the load side as well as consumer side. Thus it is necessary to control the harmonics to improve the power quality of the system. There are number of control techniques to improve the power quality with the FACTS devices. In this paper performance of Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) for Power Quality improvement has been studied. The simulation is done in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment.
