It is the study of improving power quality in which wind energy is connected to electrical energy through a distributed D-STATCOM, which is connected to the grid. This study consists of a wind turbine connected to a doubly-fed induction generator, voltage sourced inverter which is connected to the utility through the point of common coupling. As the study deals with the multifunctional feature,s a direct power control is proposed. This direct power also reduces harmonics before connecting to utility and also reduces reactive power. Moreover, this system ensures the efficiency of the system. The control algorithm is proposed in this study is very much effective in injecting active power into the system, thereby reduces harmonic currents and compensating for reactive power.
