This paper presents the voltage regulation scheme of
D-STATCOM under three-phase faults. It consists of the voltage
detection and voltage regulation schemes in the 0dq reference. The
proposed control strategy uses the proportional controller in which
the proportional gain, kp, is appropriately adjusted by using genetic
algorithms. To verify its use, a simplified 4-bus test system is situated
by assuming a three-phase fault at bus 4. As a result, the DSTATCOM
can resume the load voltage to the desired level within
1.8 ms. This confirms that the proposed voltage regulation scheme
performs well under three-phase fault events.
