In this study, the voltage stability of the bus load in various static and dynamic load systems that are fed by a wind farm has been examined. In the control of load voltage and reactive power, 10 MVAr static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) and static var compensator (SVC) is used. In the wind farm examined, double feed induction generator (DFIG) is used. In voltage and reactive power control, the results of time response and damping oscillation have been found using MATLAB / Simulink. The results achieved have proved that SVC and STATCOM yield good results when used in terms of voltage stability of the system.
