    The optimal utilization of the electrical distribution system (DS) is necessary considering the recent increase of the grid networks. Issues like excessive power loss, voltage fluctuation or regulation, voltage profile problem, reliability, etc. arise due to high construction cost, and power network development. To overcome these issues, the Distributed Static Compensator (DSTATCOM) is worn in the power DS. In the past few years, investigators have practiced locating optimal sites with the size of DSTATCOM with different aspects into consideration. The economic profit, reliability, required quality, and availability are some considerations to find out the size, and optimal site of DSTATCOM. The existing research work can be categorized into five types including artificial neural network supported methodology, analytical approaches, meta-heuristic approaches, sensitivity based approaches, and a method with the combination of sensitivity approaches & meta-heuristic based approaches. The work so carried out by precious investigators' objectives of voltage deviation mitigation, power loss alleviation, reduction of cost of DSTATCOM, enhancement of reliability matrices, and improvement in voltage stability are considered. All methods of DSTATCOM placement are discussed and compared to one another. This paper presents a review for controlling methods and the optimal allocation of the DSTATCOM in DS.
