This paper deals with the performance analysis of static compensator (STATCOM) based voltage regulator for self- excited induction generators (SEIGs) feeding non-linear single phase loads. The presence of non-linear loads in some applications injects harmonics into the generating system. Because an SEIG is a weak isolated system, these harmonics have a great effect on its performance. Additionally, SEIG’s offer poor voltage regulation and require an adjustable reactive power source to maintain a constant terminal voltage under a varying load. A three-phase insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) based current controlled voltage source inverter (CC-VSI) known as STATCOM is used for harmonic elimination. It also provides the required reactive power an SEIG needs to maintain a constant terminal voltage under varying loads. A dynamic model of an SEIG-STATCOM system with the ability to compensate the unbalanced current caused by single-phase loads that are connected across the two terminals of the three-phase SEIG  under  varying loads  has been analyzed by using D-Q frame theory algorithm. This enables us to predict the behavior of the system under transient conditions. The simulated results shows that by using a STATCOM based voltage regulator the SEIG can balance the current; in addition to that the STATCOM is able to regulate the terminal voltage of the generator and suppresses the harmonic currents injected by non- linear loads.
