In this paper, the role of FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission System) devices in addressing various power quality issues has been studied. In FACTS, power electronic devices and their switching control schemes are used for improving the power flow in the transmission network and hence improve the power quality and reliability of the low-voltage distribution network. These devices can play a significant role in maximizing the power transmission capability of the transmission networkand providing high power quality at the point of common coupling (PCC) of the distribution system. The Distributed Static Compensator or DSTATCOM is a type of FACTS controller and has the function of reactive power compensation and harmonic mitigation. This paper discusses the use of synchronous detection algorithm for implementation of DSTATCOM for mitigation of harmonics. The dynamic performance is analyzed and verified through simulation.
