In this work a methodology is developed of optimization applying to the Simulated Annealing Algorithm, which involves the dimensioning and the localization of STATCMOs at the different buses of the Portuguese grid where there is injection of the wind generation considering the 2009 scenario. With this methodology it is hoped to obtain reactive energy support and consequently improving the voltage values at situations of abnormal grid functioning, as for exemple, at the sequence of a short-circuit. In this way it is supplied, to the wind generators capacity of "ride through fault" capability so that the Grid Codes are fulfilled defined by the transmission system operators. The results show how important can be STACOMs contributions in case of failure. Avoiding in many situations that the wind generators protections act due to the regulation of the relays of under-voltage, contributing in this way for the improvement of the dynamic behavior of the whole grid.
