Graphical Abstract:


Background: In recent years, demand for electricity has increased considerably, while the expansion of generation and transmission has been very slow due to limited investment in resources and environmental restrictions.

Methods: As a result, the power system becomes vulnerable to disturbances and instability. FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) technology has now been accepted as a potential solution to this problem. This paper deals with the modelling, simulation and fuzzy self-tuning control of a DSTATCOM to enhance the stability and improve the critical fault clearing time (CCT) in a single machine infinite bus (SMIB). A detailed modelling of the D-STATCOM and comprehensive derivation of the fuzzy logic self-tuning control is presented.

Results: The dynamic performance of the power system with the proposed control scheme is validated through in a simulation study carried out under Matlab/Simulink and SimPowerSystems toolbox.

Conclusion: The results demonstrate a significant enhancement of the power system stability under the simulated fault conditions considered.

Keywords: Critical fault clearing time, D-STATCOM, FACTS, fuzzy self-tuning control, PSS, stability, voltage control.
