Abstract: The study of problem is when high value reactive load adding or removing that time voltage sag and swell we are trying to removing sag and swell we can say that stable for all time.  The D-STATCOM ac current mode activities in active and reactive current are suppressed by mode shape; along these lines fortifying the receptive current exercises on the heap transport voltage guideline. It can be clearly seen from the obtained results that the voltage attains stability after a short surge even on sudden change in load conditions. The aforesaid conditions have been verified by both load addition and load removal. Application is all generation system used (wind, thermal, solar, etc.), D-Statcom implement in wind power systems.
