Convertible Unified Power Quality Conditioner to mitigate voltage and current imperfections


This paper proposes a novel convertible unified power quality conditioner (CUPQC) by utilizing three voltage source converters (VSCs) which are associated with a multi-transport/multifeeder dissemination framework to relieve current and voltage blemishes. The control execution of the VSCs is described by at least six circuit open/close switches configurable in at least seventeen blends to empower the CUPQC to work as shunt and arrangement dynamic power channels (APFs), bound together power quality conditioner (UPQC), interline UPQC (IUPQC), multi-converter UPQC (MC-UPQC) and summed up UPQC (GUPQC). The recreation and remuneration execution investigation of CUPQC depend on PSCAD/EMTDC.

In this paper the execution of the proposed CUPQC in three methods of activity as UPQC, MC-UPQC and GUPQC on a multi-transport/multi-feeder dispersion framework is approved by reenactment results. The working methods of the novel power quality conditioner in 17 unique modes for remuneration of flows and voltage interferences are unmistakably clarified. As an expansion to this examination, the creators are chipping away at a model for portrayal and testing of the proposed CUPQC.
