MODELING AND SIMULATION OF DSTATCOM FOR POWER QUALITY ENHANCEMENT IN DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

MODELING AND SIMULATION OF DSTATCOM FOR POWER QUALITY ENHANCEMENT IN DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

to their customers. PS especially distribution systems, have numerous non linear loads, which significantly affect the quality of power. Apart from non linear loads, events like capacitor switching, motor starting and unusual faults could also inflict power quality (PQ) problems. PQ problem is defined as any manifested problem in voltage /current or leading to frequency deviations that result in failure or mal operation of customer equipment. Voltage sags and swells are among the many PQ problems the industrial processes have to face. Voltage sags are more severe. During the past few decades, power industries have proved that the adverse impacts on the PQ can be mitigated or avoided by conventional means, and that techniques using fast controlled force commutated power electronics (PE) are even more effective. PQ compensators can be categorized into two main types. One is shunt connected compensation device that effectively eliminates harmonics. The other is the series connected device, which has an edge over the shunt type for correcting the distorted system side voltages and voltage sags caused by power transmission system faults.

Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System Using D Statcom

Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System Using D Statcom

One of the most common power frequency disturbances is voltage sag. By definition, voltage sag is an event that can last from half of a cycle to several seconds. Voltage sags typically are due to starting on large loads, such as an electric motor or an arc furnace. Induction motors draw starting currents ranging between 600 and 800% of their nominal full load currents. The current starts at the high value and tapers off to the normal running current in about 2 to 8 sec, based on the motor design and load inertia. Depending on the instant at which the voltage is applied to the motor, the current can be highly asymmetrical.

Multilevel- UPQC for Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System Integrated with PV System

Multilevel- UPQC for Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System Integrated with PV System

by day due to world industrialization. To conserve fossil fuels for future generations distribution energy generations (DG) are the best alternative. Wind and PV plays a key role on renewable power generation. The power quality is the main constraint while feeding power to distribution loads. In this paper DG are used to feed power to Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) through a multi-level converter. The multilevel converter is used as shunt and series converters of UPQC, by using this converter the harmonic component presented in the output of the converter is redused compared to the conventional 2level converter output. Also reduces %THD presented on the fundamental value. Due to this the filter component requirement is less compared to conventional case. The inclusion of multilevel converters in UPQC can reduce the filtering requirement, power loss and reactive power consumed by the converter.

Enhancement of Power Quality in Distribution System Using D STATCOM

When the power requirement is high, three phase inverters are used. When three single-phase inverters are connected in parallel, we can get the three-phase inverter. The gating signals for the three phase inverters have a phase difference of 120 o . These inverters take their dc supply from a battery or from a rectifier and can be called as six-step bridge inverter. Figure.2.2 shows the three phase inverter using six MOSFET’s and with diodes. A large capacitor is connected at the input terminals tends to make the input dc voltage constant. This capacitor also suppresses the harmonics fed back to the source. Therefore the Voltage Source Inverter is only buck (step down) inverter operation for DC to AC power conversion or boost (step-up) operation for AC to DC power conversion.

ABSTRACT: With the increase in use of electronic equipments there has been rise in problems related to power quality. Power quality deals with utilization of electric energy from the distribution system successfully without interference or interruption. The various power quality disturbances are transients, interruptions, voltage sag, voltage swell, voltage collapse, harmonics etc. These power quality related problems can be solved with the help of various custom power devices. Dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) is a custom power device used for the compensation of voltage sag and swell. It can provide the most commercial solution to mitigation voltage sag by injecting voltage as well as power into the system. In this paper an overview of DVR, its components, functions, compensating techniques and control methods are reviewed in detail and the compensating techniques are compared.

A Review on Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System using UPQC

A Review on Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System using UPQC

Power Quality (PQ) has become an important issue to electricity consumers at all levels of usage. The PQ issue is defined as “Any power problem manifested in voltage, current, or frequency deviations that results in failure or misoperation of customer equipment.” The development of power electronic based equipment has a significant impact on quality of electric power supply. The switch mode power supplies (SMPS), dimmers, current regulator, frequency converters, low power consumption lamps, arc welding machines, etc, are some out of the many vast applications of power electronics based devices. The operation of these loads/equipments generates harmonics and thus, pollutes the modern distribution system. The growing interest in the utilization of renewable energy resources for electric power generation is making the electric power distribution network more susceptible to power quality problems. In such conditions both electric utilities and end users of electric power are increasingly concerned about the quality of electric power.
