This paper introduces the use of a fuzzy logic controlled synchronous motor for reactive power compensation. The fuzzy logic controlled synchronous motor can give a very fast response to the reactive power required by the load. Therefore, the over or under compensation and time delay are eliminated in this system. It is concluded that the reactive power compensation system with a fuzzy logic controlled synchronous motor is reliable, sensitive, economical, faster and more efficient than an other one with capacitor groups.
