This paper presents the construction of a prototype distribution static compensator (D-STATCOM) for load compensation in an unbalanced distribution system. The DSTATCOM is intended to replace the widely used static var compensator (SVC). The compensation scheme of the D-STATCOM is derived using the symmetrical component method. In this work, the 12-pulse D-STATCOM configuration with IGBT has been designed and the graphic based models of the D-STATCOM have been developed using the PSCAD/EMTDC electromagnetic transient simulation program. Accordingly, simulation is first carried out to illustrate the use of D-STATCOM in mitigating voltage sag in a distribution system. The D-STATCOM has been developed using SPWM controller to achieve excellent overall performance. Simulation results prove that the D-STATCOM is capable of mitigating voltage sag by controlling SPWM of the system using SPWM board
