This paper presents the application of static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) to enhance damping of Low Frequency Oscillations at a single-machine infinite-bus power system installed with a STATCOM as cast study. STATCOM is considered in order to damping of Low Frequency Oscillations. Therefore, the supplementary stabilizer based STATCOM (like power system stabilizer) is designed to reach defined purpose. Optimization methods such as Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Genetic Algorithms (GA) are considered to design STATCOM supplementary stabilizer controller. To show effectiveness and also comparing these two methods, the proposed methods are simulated under different operating conditions. Several linear time-domain simulation tests visibly show the validity of proposed methods in damping of power system oscillations. Also simulation results emphasis on the better performance of PSO in comparison with GA method.
