With the growing application of Static Var Compensator (SVC) and Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM), the coordinating problem of SVC and STATCOM controllers in joint operation must be considered in modern power systems. This paper firstly establishes the nonlinear differential-algebra equations model of a single-machine infinite-bus (SMIB) power system installed with a SVC and a STATCOM and points out the possibility of the negative interactions between SVC and STATCOM controllers in this SMIB power system. Hence, a self-adaptive single neuron (SSN) control approach based on genetic algorithm is designed to eliminate the negative interactions and improve the stability of the closed-loop SMIB power system. The detailed simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed SSN controllers.
