The distributed generation scheme with integration of renewable energy sources furnishes the feasible solution to acquire the stable power demand in grid-connected system under sudden load interruptions. Over the various compensation devices, the highly recognized multi-purpose Static Compensator is integrated to grid for attaining enhanced power quality features. A co-generation based grid-integrated renewable sources are used but, the output of these sources are maintained un-constant due to presence of variable source. In this paper, a novel current controller was developed to maintain output of co-generation system as constant and achieve the load demand continuously. But, this scheme has two major disadvantages, primary one is current controller prerequisites the traditional PI controller, which is controlled by intelligent based Fuzzy-Logic controller that is adopted. The second is, the regular 3-level voltage-source inverter is used in STATCOM which has square-wave output voltage requires high range of filter units, more common-mode voltage, high dv/dt stress, more switching losses, low efficiency, so on. These issues are counteracted by utilizing multilevel inverter with attractive modulation scheme. The performance evaluation of proposed Multilevel Inverter based STATCOM is verified by traditional PI and proposed Fuzzy-Logic current controller by using MATLAB/SIMULINK tool and results are conferred with comparisons.
