Planning and Operation of DSTATCOM in Electrical Distribution Systems

Sanam, Joseph (2017) Planning and Operation of DSTATCOM in Electrical Distribution Systems. PhD thesis.



In present day scenario, it is most essential to consider the maximum asset performance of the power distribution systems to reach the major goals to meet customer demands. To reach the goals, the planning optimization becomes crucial, aiming at the right level of reliability, maintaining the system at a low total cost while keeping good power quality. There are some problems encountered which are hindering the effective and efficient performance of the distribution systems to maintain power quality. These problems are higher power losses, poor voltage profile near to the end customers, harmonics in load currents, sags and swells in source voltage etc. All these problems may arise due to the presence of nonlinear loads, unpredictable loads, pulse loads, sensor and other energy loads, propulsion loads and DG connections etc. Hence, in order to improve the power quality of power distribution systems, it is required to set up some power quality mitigating devices, for example, distribution static synchronous compensator (DSTATCOM), dynamic voltage restorer (DVR), and unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) etc. The goal of this project work is to devise a planning of optimal allocation of DSTATCOM in distribution systems using optimization techniques so as to provide reactive power compensation and improve the power quality.
