The innovation carried out by this study is the implementation of a five-level H inverter for the STATCOM converter (including 24 IGBT-s transistors).
One of the important FACTS devices which we have focused on in this research is called the Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM).
Por otro lado, los Statcom (Static Synchronous Compensator) son un tipo de Facts mas avanzado, cuya corriente reactiva de intercambio no depende de la tension a la que esta conectado [6].
Due to the real and reactive power control and the cost effective advantages of the STATCOM (Static Synchronous Compensator) used.
The following are included within the most feasible technical implementation towards achieving this goal: synchronous machines with adjustable excitation current, batteries, capacitors, capacitor banks with serial reactors, passive filters and active higher harmonics (including STATCOM), and SVC (including TSC, FC/TCR, and TCR/TSC).
VSC-HVDC has the following two main advantages, one is that VSC-HVDC transmission technology supplies power to the passive load without the commutation voltage of the AC system, the other one is that VSC-HVDC does not need AC power grid to provide reactive power to stabilize DC voltage, which can work as static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) [2-4].
