The extensive use of non-linear loads in domestic, industrial and commercial services origin harmonic complications. Harmonics make malfunctions in profound equipment, voltage drop across the network, conductor heat increases and overvoltage through resonance. All these problems can be remunerated by using Unified Power Quality Controller (UPQC) and the operation of UPQC depends upon the available voltage across capacitor present in dc link.
If the capacitor voltage is maintained constant then it gives satisfactory performance. The proposed research is basically on designing of Wind energy fed to the dc link capacitor of UPQC so as to maintain proper voltage across it and operate the UPQC for power quality analysis. The proposed technique is the grouping of shunt and series Active Power Filter (APF) to form UPQC
Which is fed wind energy system and connected to grid for better response in the output. In this paper, the simulation model of series APF, shunt APF, UPQC and Wind energy with UPQC are design in Matlab. The proposed Wind energy-UPQC is design in Matlab simulation for reduction of voltage sag, swell, harmonics in load current and compensation of active and reactive power.
- Power quality
- Unified power quality conditioner
- Wind energy
The advantage of wind energy system is to retain a constant voltage of 600 volts across the DC-Link capacitor. In this work the wind energy with boost converter output is 600V and simulation of wind energy-UPQC maintains constant voltage of 600V when Sag, Swell and Interruption occur.
It also reduces the harmonics content to 2.33% if any nonlinear load is associated as shown in Figure 19. Hence the proposed scheme can regulate active and reactive power injection to the grid and compensate voltage sag and swell in addition to the other usual operation of UPQC effectible as the voltage across the dc link capacitor is maintained constant. Figure 20 shows DC link voltage.
