Simulation & Analysis of Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) for Power Quality Improvement

Authors(2) :-Keyur V. Patel, Priyank R Bhavsar

This paper presents an analysis on the unified Power quality conditioner (UPQC) to improve the electric power quality at distribution levels. Conventional power quality mitigation equipment is a providing to be poor for an increasing number of applications. Different approaches in compensation and recent developments in fields. Single modern and very promising solution that deal with both load current and supply voltage inadequacy is the Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC). This is intended to present a broad overview on the different possible UPQC system configurations for single-phase (two-wire) and three-phase (three-wire and four-wire) networks.
