چکیده

The stability of power systems is an important and vital challenge. The instabilities created in power networks are due to the existence of factors such as short circuit, switching, or error, which causes loss of generator synchronism and thus leads to interruption in the process of power gen-eration. Today, by using FACTS tools and reactive power compensation, it helps to stabilize sys-tems against such problems. In this paper, SVC and STATCOM are investigated and analyzed in order to maintain network synchronism and increase the dynamic stability and transient stability of the system against the mentioned factors, in reactive power compensation. The presented sim-ulations were performed in the MATLAB/Simulink environment and the results were fully checked.
