Voltage instability problems are attracting more and more attention in the areas of power system operation, planning and control. These problems are becoming a more serious concern with the ever-increasing utilization and higher loading of existing transmission systems, particularly with increasing power demands, and competitive generation and supply requirements. As the power demand increases different techniques are being introduced in order to improve the power quality issues. In this paper, a FACTS controller, Static Compensator (STATCOM) is being used in the power system in order to mitigate the common power quality issues like voltage sags. STATCOM is also used to overcome various faults. The simulations were performed using MATLAB/SIMULINK.
