The paper presents capacities of D-STATCOM frameworks used to enhance control quality (PQ) in low voltage (LV) networks with appropriated vitality assets (DERs).For the contextual investigation an ordinary country organize has been chosen in which, on one hand DER introducing is the most plausible and on the other hand, integration process may bring about the greatest problems. Selected single-stage DERs of differing force are associated into the system which present PQ unsettling influences, for example, voltage variations, harmonics and asymmetry. To relieve deviations in control quality D-STATCOM compensator working in current control mode has been connected. Models of the system together with the chose DERs and compensator framework have been produced in the PSCAD/EMTDC environment. Simulation has been performed for the investigation of the system execution and the evaluation of remuneration adequacy. The likelihood of utilizing the DSTATCOM working in voltage control mode for decreasing voltage plunges originating from the providing system has likewise been contemplated. Control circuits have been intended for these two methods of operation. Portrayal of the review network, their component models and some chose consequences of reenactment are displayed in the paper.
