Abstract: Now days renewable energy sources are very important for electrical power generation. In that condition wind power generation plays an important role in power system especially under integration of high penetration level of wind to grid, but at grid location having power quality problems like voltage sag, voltage swell, voltage fluctuations. As we know that most of the generator is induction generator (IG), so it requires more reactive power (VArs) from grid. In this paper according to aerodynamic aspects of wind farms, the major power quality problem that is voltage sag is mitigated by STATCOM .Wind turbine connected to squirrel cage induction generator(SCIG) is modeled by using MATLAB simulation with a fault condition to mitigate voltage sag and where STATCOM inject reactive power to increase power system stability
