The present study suggests that series voltage injection is more effective than parallel current injection to improve voltage quality on the load side. The line voltage can be accurately symmetrized at the connection point by creating and controlling a series voltage component in each phase. This is more reliable and effective than parallel current injection. A dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) and a distribution static synchronous compensator (DSTATCOM) were utilized to provide the required power. The DVR is an effective and modern device utilized in parallel within the grid and can protect sensitive loads from voltage problems in the grid by injecting voltage. The DVR and D-STATCOM were used to improve voltage stability in faults. A standard 13-bus system was studied in the presence of a wind farm. The simulation results demonstrated that single and three-phase overloads dramatically altered the voltage of the system, making it necessary to use compensators to improve voltage stability. The DVR and D-STATCOM showed similar performance under normal conditions and somewhat improved grid voltage unbalance. However, the DVR outperformed D-STATCOM under asymmetric faults conditions and led to lower voltage variations.
