In this paper, the distribution static synchronous compensator (DSTATCOM) is used for compensation of the reactive power concerned in an electrical distribution network. DSTATCOM is based on a five level Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) and is controlled to compensate reactive power and correcting power factor. The control of this device was carried out by fuzzy logic controller known by its speed and its simplicity of implementation. The performance of the DSTATCOM using the proposed control strategy is demonstrated using simulation results in MATLAB/SIMULINK software. Simulation results demonstrate the feasibility of proposed scheme for the control of DSTACOM.
