Abstract
This paper presents a study of a single-phase cascaded H-bridge multilevel converter-based Distribution Static Synchronous Compensator (D-STATCOM) with active harmonic filtering capability. For the proper operation of the proposed D-STATCOM, a constant voltage is maintained at its DC bus link using a proportional and integral (PI) controller. Based on instantaneous current errors, gate pulses for controlling duty cycles of the D-STATCOM operation are generated using the hysteresis current control (HCC) technique. The proposed D-STATCOM was modeled and simulated in MATLAB. Simulation results show that the proposed method effectively compensates for reactive power and mitigates current harmonics. The proposed method offers structural simplicity and efficiency without complex calculations.
