This thesis is devoted to a study of the dynamics of two charge and three chargesystems in string theory. We analyze properties of two charge systems in variousduality frames and carry out perturbative addition of momentum to these systems.This gives us a picture of microscopic origin of entropy of black holes, supportingthe Mathur conjecture. We extend the perturbative construction to provide a mi-crostate for the two charge black ring by adding a small amount of momentum as thethird charge. We found it to be completely smooth and horizonless in accord withthe Mathur conjecture. We further study dynamics of supertubes in both the weakcoupling and the strong coupling regimes which suggests a way to distinguish boundstates from unbound states in string theory. We apply these results to supertubesin KK monopole background. We construct metrics describing two charge solutionsin four dimensions by adding momentum to a system of 
coincident KK mono-pole solution. We find that adding momentum separates the monopoles and resolvesthe associated
singularities. We also consider branes wrapping cycles in space-times generated by two and three charge systems and analyze their supersymmetryproperties.ii
