STATCOM is a FACTS controller that is used in power systems to regulate the line voltage, enhance the power transmission capacity and extend the transient stability margin. STATCOM is conventionally realized by a voltage-source converter; however, being a current injection device, its performance can be improved when realized by a current-source converter (CSC) that can generate a controllable current directly at its output terminals. In this paper, a STATCOM based on the current- source converter topology is proposed. But the best constant values for pole placement controller's parameters are laboriously obtained through trial and error, although time consuming. So the genetic algorithm (GA) is employed to find the best values for pole placement controller's parameters in a very short time. These methods are tested in MATLAB, and their results are obtained. The simulation results show an improvement in input output response of CSC-STATCOM.
