Harmonic Compensation using Coordinated Control of Dual Interfacing Converters at Microgrid

Authors(4) :-D. Agila, D. Anbukkarasi, A. Barathi, M. Sujith

In distribution systems, there will be sudden increase or decreases in the load similar to nonlinear load .The load draws non-sinusoidal currents from the AC mains and these causes the load harmonics and reactive power, and excessive neutral currents that pollute power systems. Most of the power quality issues are created by nonlinear characteristics and fast switching of power electronic devices. A single distribution generation interfacing converters are generally used for harmonic compensation in DG but this may cause amplification of supply voltage harmonics when the system is connected to a sensitive load. In this paper we proposed a compensation strategy in which to shunt interfacing converters are used, first one for voltage harmonic suppression and the second one for current harmonic suppression that resulted due to the interaction between the first interfacing converter and the local nonlinear load
