This paper presents the design and implementation of a distribution-level static synchronous compensator (DSTATCOM) used for the real-time load compensation of three-phase, fourwire power distribution systems with unbalanced loads. First, use of the symmetrical components method derives a feedforward compensation scheme for the DSTATCOM. The system block diagram of the DSTATCOM is then built. A computer simulation is performed for preliminary verification. Finally, a hardware prototype is built using a TMS320C6711- based controller. Experimental results verify the functionality of the DSTATCOM.
