Abstract: The central perceptive predicament in the power system is a power quality issue. The majority of the power system contamination is due to the presence of non-linear quality of loads. An increase in the usage of the non-linear type of loads leads to rising in power quality issues and becoming a severe crisis with time. To trounce the power quality issues, DSTATCOM has expanded its management because of its outstanding recital in mitigating harmonics and reactive power issues. A feat of DSTATCOM depends on control strategy. The paper presents an extensive review of control strategies for DSTATCOM in the distribution system. The reference current signal generated from the control strategy is an essential step in producing gate pulses to DSTATCOM in the distribution system. Simulation models of different control strategiesintegratedinto DSTATCOM are simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
