The prime focus of this paper is on power factor improvement in a medium transmission line through reactive power compensation using the distribution side – Static Synchronous Compensator (D-STATCOM). A 100 kVA, 11 kV, 80 Km transmission line is taken into consideration and shunt compensation is established through the Vector based Hysteresis Current Control (HCC) technique. The purpose of implementing the vector-based HCC is to reduce the losses associated with a high switching frequency in the conventional HCC. The simulation results are presented to show the performance of the system and are found to be satisfactory.
