Investigation on the Performance of a Series Voltage Compensator for Mitigating Voltage Sag and Swell in Power Distribution Networks

Authors(1) :-Bhaskar Lodh

Among the power quality problems (sags, swells, harmonic etc.) voltage sag and swell are the harshest disturbances. In order to solve these problems the idea of custom power devices is introduced lately. One of those devices is the Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR), which is the most competent and efficient modern custom power device used in power distribution networks. Dynamic voltage restorer is also known as series voltage compensator. Other than voltage sag and swell compensation, such compensator has other added features like line voltage harmonic compensation, reduction of transient in voltage and fault current limitation etc. There are several methods that have been introduced so far to design and implement such controllers. In this paper, a Simulink based model is introduced to analyse the performance of series voltage compensator. Simulink is a graphical user interface based tool furnished by Matlab Inc. to built and analyse different types of linear and non linear systems. It is a very powerful tool for design engineers.
