Comparative Analysis of Total Harmonic Distortion for Welding Load.

Authors(2) :-Rajpreet Kaur, Shimpy Maheshwari

In today's era power quality is the main issue mainly for welding load which includes the problems like total harmonic distortion, voltage sags, voltage swells, voltage distortions etc. In this paper we will discuss about the Total Harmonic Distortions for the welding load by using the simple modular dc-dc converter, modular bridge dc-dc converter and by using the Z- Source Converter using Dynamic Voltage Restorer and will try to find out the best possible solution for reducing the Total Harmonic Distortions. Harmonics are basically the disturbances caused by the non linear voltage or current by the equipment due to use of modern electronic power supplies. Power quality analysis of welding power supply for harmonic distortion has been carried out using MATLAB R 2009b version software.
