Improving the Performance of Cascaded H-bridge based Interline Dynamic Voltage Restorer

IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, 2015


 An interline dynamic voltage restorer (IDVR) is a new device for sag mitigation which is made of several dynamic voltage restorers (DVRs) with a common DC link, where each DVR is connected in series with a distribution feeder. During sag period, active power can be transferred from a feeder to another one and voltage sags with long durations can be mitigated. IDVR compensation capacity, however, depends greatly on the load power factor and a higher load power factor causes lower performance of IDVR. To overcome this limitation, a new idea is presented in this paper which allows to reduce the load power factor under sag condition, and therefore, the compensation capacity is increased. The proposed IDVR employs two cascaded H-bridge multilevel converters to inject AC voltage with lower THD and eliminates necessity to low-frequency isolation transformers in one side. The validity of the proposed configuration is verified by simulations in the PSCAD/EMTDC environment. Then, experimental results on a scaled-down IDVR are presented to confirm the theoretical and simulation results.

In this paper, a new configuration has been proposed which not only improves the compensation capacity of the IDVR at high power factors, but also increases the performance of the compensator to mitigate deep sags at fairly moderate power factors. These advantages were achieved by decreasing the load power factor during sag condition. In this technique, the source voltages are sensed continuously and when the voltage sag is detected, the shunt reactances are switched into the circuit and decrease the load power factors to improve IDVR performance. Finally, the simulation and practical results on the CHB based IDVR confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed configuration and control scheme.

A Two Degrees of Freedom Resonant Control Scheme for Voltage Sag Compensation in Dynamic Voltage Restorers


 IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, 2017


This paper presents a two degrees of freedom (2DOF) control scheme for voltage compensation in a dynamic voltage restorer (DVR). It commences with the model of the DVR power circuit, which is the starting point for the control design procedure. The control scheme is based on a 2DOF structure implemented in a stationary reference frame (α−β), with two nested controllers used to obtain a pass-band behavior of the closed-loop transfer function, and is capable of achieving both a balanced and an unbalanced voltage sag compensation. The 2DOF control has certain advantages with regard to traditional control methods, such as the possibility of ensuring that all the poles of the closed-loop transfer function are chosen without the need for observers and reducing the number of variables to be measured. The use of the well-known double control- loop schemes which employ feedback current controllers to reduce the resonance of the plant is, therefore, unnecessary. A simple control methodology permits the dynamic behavior of the system to be controlled and completely defines the location of the poles. Furthermore, extensive simulations and experimental results obtained using a 5 kW DVR laboratory prototype show the good performance of the proposed control strategy.

This paper presents a control scheme based on two nested controllers for voltage sag compensation in a DVR. The nested regulators provide the control with two degrees of freedom, and the control scheme is implemented in the stationary reference frame. Furthermore, in order to accomplish the requirements for voltage sag compensation, it is necessary to track the component at the fundamental frequency. This is achieved using a resonant term in one of the controllers. The proposed control design methodology is able to define all the poles of the closed-loop system without observers and with a reduction in the number of variables that must be measured, thus making it possible to avoid the use of the traditional current loop employed in control schemes for the DVR. The structure with the nested regulators achieves perfect zero tracking error at the nominal frequency and blocks the DC offset, signifying that it has some advantages over other control methods, such as double-loop schemes with proportional-resonant regulators. Moreover, the design methodology is thoroughly explained when the delay in the calculations is taken into account.

In this case, the design procedure allows the dominant poles of the closed-loop system to be chosen. If the closed-loop poles are chosen carefully, this control structure can also be applied to other systems which require higher delays, e.g., power converter applications with a reduced switching frequency. The design methodology can additionally be extended to the discrete domain. Comprehensive simulated and experimental results corroborate the performance of the 2DOF-Resonant control scheme for balanced and unbalanced voltage sags. The proposed control scheme is able to compensate both types of voltage sags with a very fast transient response and an accurate tracking of the reference voltage, even when the different types of loads and frequency deviations of the grid voltages are considered. Extended comparisons with a PR controller using a double-loop scheme and a PR controller in a double loop with a Posicast regulator have been carried out, demonstrating that the performance of the 2DOF-Resonant controller is superior in all cases. Moreover, the study of the stability as regards parameter variations for the compared control schemes demonstrates the more robust behavior of the 2DOF-Resonant control scheme.
