The expansion of power system has prompted the increase of Distributed Generation to satisfy the load demand, due to the development of power grid the efficient utilisation of electricity is most important. Since the significant expense for construction and development of power networks, mitigation alleviation of existing issues that are excessive power losses, voltage profile problems, voltage instabilities, reliability issues. To hinder all these issues Distribution Synchronous Static Compensator D-STATCOM can be connected as a shunt device to provide reactive power compensation in the low voltage distribution network. It is very important to figure out based on reliability, economic usage, availability. This paper provides an up to date survey of the literature on the optimal allocation of D-STATCOM in distribution networks.
