Abstract: DSTATCOM (Distribution Static Compensator) is a shunt device. It is used to solve power quality problems in distribution systems. DSTATCOM is a shunt device used in correcting power factor, maintaining constant distribution voltage and mitigating harmonics in a distribution network. This paper presents a comparison of the performances of Type-1 and Type-2 Fuzzy logic controlled multilevel DSTATCOM for improvement of electric power, and corrects the power factor. The pulses for the five-level inverter are generated by Space Vector Modulation (SVM). The performance of Type-1 and Type-2 fuzzy logic controllers under load variation is evaluate using simulation results in MATLAB/Simulink.

Keywords: DSTATCOM; Fuzzy logic controller; Space Vector Modulation (SVM).
