Power Quality Improvement Using Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC)

Anand , Piyush (2016) Power Quality Improvement Using Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC). MTech thesis.



The advance use of power electronic devices introduces harmonics in the supply system which creates a problem in the quality of power delivered. Good Power Quality is very much important for our day to day use of appliances in both industrial and domestic sectors. Researchers have tried and implemented many useful technology for removing all the voltage and current related harmonic occurrence problems which in turn improves the quality of power delivered to the power system. The prime focus of this thesis is the implementation of control strategies like SRF theory and instantaneous power (p-q) for the operation of Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) which is one of the recent technology that includes both series and shunt active power filter operating at the same time and thereby improves all the current and voltage related problem like voltage sag/swell, flicker, etc. at the same time and helps in reduction of Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). In this thesis it is shown via MATLAB simulation how UPQC model can be used to decrease the % THD in source voltage, source current and load voltage waveforms created due to non-linear/ sensitive loads usage.
