Abstract
Renewable energy sources are getting more and more widespread mainly due to the fact that they are environmentally friendly. The reduced prices of Photovoltaic system components and technological developments of power (PV) electronics have also motivated the harnessing of renewable energy. The inter connection of renewable energy sources are incorporated using power electronics converters, with the aim of improving power quality at the point of common coupling (PCC). This study presents a novel idea where a STATCOM is used innovatively as a) a load reactive power compensator b) an interface unit between the grid and renewable energy source, and c) as an effective method for real power exchange between the dynamic load system, grid and renewable energy source. A controller unit is proposed for the STATCOM based on modified Icosφ algorithm by which reactive power compensation and power factor correction is done and also real power support is provided by renewable energy source through STATCOM
