Compensation of Voltage Distribunces In SMIB System Using ANN Based DPFC Controller Latest Electrical projects



Since last decade, due to advancement in technology and increasing in the electrical loads and also due to complexity of the devices the quality of power distribution is decreases. A Power quality issue is nothing but distortions in current, voltage and frequency that affect the end user equipment or disoperation; these are main problems of power quality so compensation for these problems by DPFC is presented in this paper. The control circuits for DPFC are designed by using line currents, series reference voltages and these are controlled by conventional ANN controllers. The results are observed by MATLAB/SIMULINK model.

In this paper we implemented a concept to controlling the power quality issues i.e. DPFC. The proposed theory of this device is mathematical formulation and analysis of voltage dips and their mitigations for a three phase source with linear load. In this paper we also proposed a concept of Ann controller for better controlling action. As compared to all other facts devices the DPFC based ANN has effectively control all power quality problems and with this technique we get the THD as 3.65% and finally the simulation results are shown above.
