This paper deals with the performance, analysis of, operating principles of a new generation of power electronics based equipment called Distribution Static Compensator (D-STATCOM) aimed at enchancing the reliability, and quality of power flow in low voltage distribution network. The model is based on the Voltage Source Converter (VSC) principle. The D-STATCOM injects a current into the system to mitigate the voltage sags.LCL Passive Filter was then added to D-STATCOM to improve harmonic distortion and low power factor.
