Alternative renewable energy structures for example hydro turbine generators can be utilised to replace or rise in the efficiency of energy distribution infrastructure in remote communities. A small hydro turbine linked to grid divides the load into current and electricity. The voltage amplitude in the energy distribution structure will be changed as a result of the power quality problem, and this will have a direct influence on the electric load. This study introduces the PV-STATCOM, a novel smart inverter that can be used to control a solar inverter as dynamic reactive power compensator (DRPC). The recommended photovoltaic STATCOM can be utilised to offer voltage regulate for serious structure demands. For the night, the whole inverter capacity is utilised for STATCOM operations. The smart inverter temporarily disables its real power generating function during a large system outage throughout the day and makes its whole inverter capacity accessible for STATCOM operation. This research examines the stability of the voltage control structure`s excitation in the Micro Hydro Power Plant. The MOPSO algorithm may be used to regulate the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine and control the voltage on the direct current linked part of system. The system will most probably be unstable if the exact definition of system parameters is uncertain. To present the parameter specifications for the stable structure, the DC-link control system is modelled, theoretically assessed, and simulated. This paper proposes the use of a particle swarm optimization centred SVC controller for reactive power optimization and adjustment in a separated hybrid system with micro hydro and wind diesel. The small linear signal model of the hybrid micro hydro Diesel wind model is investigated under various loading scenarios. The SVC controller is compared to the GA-based controller and optimised using the PSO approach. The purpose of study is to employ STATCOM for reactive power compensation in order to increase energy structure's dependable operating limit. It also tries to reduce voltage variations caused by renewable energy sources' variable nature. To obtain an acceptable outcome, the proper modification of Proportional–Integral parameters in STATCOM is conducted consequentially centred on BFA and GA. The STATCOM control circuit's PI controller's settings have been optimised. This article discusses the optimization and adjustment strategies for PID controllers in a STATCOM based circuit for PV-Micro hydro hybrid system voltage stability.
