The wind power which is one of the most utilized renewable energy resources with respect to increasing demand load is highly required. Therefore, the study of the effect due to dynamic nature of power system on wind farm is necessary for improvement. The increased consumption of electric power beyond safe limits causes transmission lines to operate on boundary limit or even beyond causing overloaded transmission line congestions. Controlling active and reactive power flow with keeping healthy voltage can be done with FACTS devices. This paper presents the impact of static compensator or STATCOM on the stability of grid integrated wind turbine system and the behavior in overloaded condition. In this work, we used doubly fed induction generator model for simulations to find dynamic characteristics and detailed analysis has been provided.
