In this paper, "a conventional D-STATCOM (Distributed Static Synchronous Compensator) with a six-switch VSC (Voltage Source Converter)" connected DC link capacitor is updated; with a hybrid renewable source "RSC-MLC (Reduced Switch Count – Multi-Level Converter) module." The conventional D-STATCOM only compensates for reactive power, whereas this topology injects active and reactive power. The RSC-MLC module is a voltage regulating device with multiple sections connected in series. Each section can be connected to renewable sources like wind farms, solar plants, or batteries. The DC link voltage reference generator controls the module voltage. D-STATCOM is controlled by the most optimal control structure PQ (Active and Reactive Power) theory with higher harmonics mitigation capability. The complete test system with a three-phase grid feeding non-linear reactive power load compensated by hybrid renewable source RSC-MLC module integrated D-STATCOM with PQ controller is modeled in MATLAB Simulink environment. Performance and analysis of the proposed system are done using different tools from the software.
