Problem statement: Modern power system consists of the complicated network of transmission lines and carries heavy demand. Thus they cause in the stability problem. Approach: Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) is a power electronic based device that has the capability of controlling the power flow through a line. The series voltage injection model of SSSC is modeled into power flow equation and thus it is used to determine its control strategy. This study applies the fuzzy logic applies the SSSC to improve stability of power system. The mathematical model and control strategy of a SSSC are presented. The SSSC is represented by variable voltage injection with associate transformer leakage control to derive control strategy of SSSC. The swing curves of the three phase faulted power system without and with a SSSC is tested and compared in various cases. Results: The swing curve of the system with SSSC based fuzzy logic control has the less amplitude during the dynamic period. Conclusion: It was found from simulation results that SSSC can improve the power system oscillation after disturbance.
