The static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) has attracted considerable attention because it can stabilise severe transients that are caused by power system disturbances. This study presents a novel interval type 2 fuzzy control system (IT2-FCS)-based controller for the STATCOM to stabilise bus voltages that are caused by faults or forced wind farm outages in a smart grid. Two IT2-FCSs are presented to tune increments of the proportional integral (PI) controller, which are optimised by the gradient descent method. The IT2 fuzzy rules, involving upper and lower membership functions, result in a fast and stable system response. Since many possible scenarios may arise in the power system, the Taguchi method is used to design experiments using an orthogonal array, in which all scenarios are mutually independent. A power system that consists of a wind farm and STATCOM is studied. Comparative studies show that the proposed method is superior to traditional PI and type 1 FCS methods.
