This paper principally advises a simple and reliable control for Static Synchronous Compensator(STATCOM) in a stand-alone wind driven self-excited induction generator power system. The control was proposedbased on instantaneous P-Q theory. The advised control enjoys the merits of robustness, reliability and simplicity.The paper also proposes a dimensioning procedure for the STATCOM that involves advising an annotativeanalytical expression for sizing the DC-link capacitor. This procedure has the advantages of applicability fordifferent reactive power compensators that depend on a separate DC-link in its operation. Comprehensive simulationresults in Matlab environment were illustrated for corroborating the performance of the advised control underrigorous operating scenarios. The results show the feasibility, reliability and practicability of the proposedcontroller.
