Static synchronous compensation (STATCOM) is an application that utilizes a voltage source converter (VSC) to provide instantaneous reactive power support to the connected power system. Conventionally, STATCOMs are employed for reactive power support only. However, with the integration of energy storage (ES) into a STATCOM, it can provide active power support in addition to the reactive power support. The control method of a STATCOM with an energy storage device is discussed in this paper. To determine the switching level control, SPWM (Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation) methods is used. This paper will introduce an integrated STATCOM/BESS for the improvement of dynamic and transient stability and transmission capability. This work suggests a simple and easy to implement PI controller to control the operation of ESTATCOM placed at the weak point of Mosul city 132 kV ring system. The whole system including the ESTATCOM and its controller has been simulated after some kinds of disturbances and the results show improvements in the dynamic active and reactive power capabilities of the system.
