The STATCOM considered here is a three phase inverter with

a dc bus capacitor and inductive filter on the line side (Fig. 11).

It is assumed that the internal dynamics of the STATCOM are

slower when compared to the switching frequency of the in-

verter [14], so that the STATCOM dynamics can be written as

ratios for the inverter, while the subscript “abc” implies vectors

consisting of individual phase quantities. Parameters in these
