Abstract: Power generation is a much discussed topic in research works recently. Power production from different renewable source were the most processed topic. There are large number of solar farms which produce heavy electricity throughout the world but the overall efficiency of those solar farms remain unutilized especially in morning and evening when the sunlight is at its minimum the power production is too low. The series of Photovoltaic Cells (PV) are responsible for power production which are connected with the grid. The solar power output is D.C which can be transformed into A.C by inverter injection in the production line. STATCOM is proposed system which is a device is coming from the sub categorization of FACTS. STATCOM is concentrated on voltage source transformer. It operates in accordance as rectifier and inverter is used to increase power transmission limits. It also has the feature of damping control. The overall gist of the system is we propose a PV-STATCOM control concept. We use MATLAB 2013a to develop a Simulink simulation of PV-STATCOM system. It will be a solar inverter which is voltage controlled and it has overall inverter properties too.

Keywords: Facts, Statcom, PV-Statcom, Matlab.
