This paper presents the instantaneous response of Distributed Static Series Compensator (DSSC) in fault current limitation of disturbed lines. DSSC has the ability to adjust the impedance of the power line in order to increase the power transfer capacity. The injected voltage is implemented here for limiting the fault currents. The STATCOM which is renowned FACTS device is also implemented for fault current limiting. The fault current will greatly reduce, if the STATCOM make the bus voltage adjacent to fault bus decrease its voltage. Furthermore, it is also revealed that, operation of both DSSC and STATCOM will greatly reduce the fault currents. The effectiveness of the DSSC in reduction of instantaneous voltage dip range during fault current limiting mode, also investigated. PSCAD/EMTC is used to validate the claims.
