The FACT device STATCOM is one of the most efficient shunt connecting regulating device which have an ability to inject and absorb the reactive power in accordance with system voltage. Now this work deals with new technique named Reference Voltage compensation(RVC)in conjunction with STATCOM based on proportional ,integral and derivative(PID) control action which reduces much the transient peak and settling time of voltage and reactive power output which were still present after application of

It has been found that the RVC using PID control concept has proved to have an excellent performance over the other similar techniques in the improvement of power system stability by reducing transient oscillation due to faults and load switching and improving power factor thereby increased system life. The result of operation of three phase system with and without STATCOM with RVC by using MATLAB simulation are recorded.
