Power Quality and Power Interruption Enhancement by Universal Power Quality Conditioning System with Storage Device

 

ABSTRACT:

In this paper a novel design of Universal Power Quality Conditioning System (UPQS) is proposed which is composed of the DC/DC converter and the storage device connected to the DC link of UPQS for balancing the voltage interruption. The proposed UPQS can balance the reactive power, harmonic current, voltage sag and swell, voltage unbalance, and the voltage interruption. The performance of proposed system was analyzed through simulations with MATLAB\SIMULINK software. The proposed system can improve the power quality at the common connection point of the non-linear load and the sensitive load.

CONCLUSION:

This paper proposes a new configuration of UPQC that consists of the DC/DC converter and the super capacitors for compensating the voltage interruption. The proposed UPQC can compensate the reactive power, harmonic current, voltage sag and swell, voltage unbalance, and the voltage interruption. The control strategy for the proposed UPQC was derived based on the Synchronous reference frame method. The operation of proposed system was verified through simulations with MATLAB/SIMULINK software. The proposed UPQC has the ultimate capability of improving the power quality at the installation point in the distribution system. The proposed system can replace the UPS, which is effective for the long duration of voltage interruption, because the long duration of voltage interruption is very rare in the present power system.
