A Mamdani based fuzzy logic controller is designed and implemented for controlling a STATCOM, which is connected to a 10 bus multimachine power system. Such a controller does not need any prior knowledge of the plant to be controlled and can efficiently provide control signals for the STATCOM during different disturbances in the network The proposed controller is implemented using the M67 DSP board and is interfaced to the multimachine power system simulated on a real-time digital simulator (RTDS). Experimental results are provided, showing that the proposed controller provides more effective damping than the conventional PI controller in a typical large scale disturbance, i.e., a three phase short circuit.
