Effect Of Distributed Generation And STATCOM In Multi-Machine System For Real Power Loss Minimization

DG, STATCOM, wind system, real power loss



The importance of Distributed Generation (DG) can be understood by studying the effect of DG with Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) in the multi-machine system. The DG system uses renewable energy sources which are connected to the conventional power system in order to minimize the real power losses in the power system. 9-bus system will be considered for this analysis. The appropriate location of the DG is identified based on the base case power result, bus voltage and total losses in the system. The STATCOM size and the appropriate location is decided by the voltage profile improvement and real power loss minimization in the system. The proposed work is carried out in PSAT with MATLAB / Simulink environment. The results ensure that the real power losses in the power system network will be minimized by placing DG and STATCOM at suitable locations.
