ABSTRACT

Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is used in power distribution system to protect sensitive loads in voltage disturbances. The performance of DVR is related to the adopted configuration and control strategy used for inverters. In this paper, an asymmetrical voltage-source inverter controlled with fuzzy logic method based on hysteresis controller, is used to improve operation of DVR to compensate voltage sag/swell. Simulation results using MATLAB/Simulink are presented to demonstrate the feasibility and the practicality of the proposed novel Dynamic Voltage Restorer topology. Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is calculated. The simulation results of new DVR presented in this paper, are found quite satisfactory to eliminate voltage sag/swell.

    ABSTRACT: The Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is fast, flexible and efficient solution to voltage sag problem. The DVR is a power electronic based device that provides three-phase controllable voltage source, whose voltage vector (magnitude and angle) adds to the source voltage during sag event, to restore the load voltage to pre-sag conditions. The DVR is designed for protecting the whole plant with loads in the range of some MVA. The DVR can restore the load voltage within few milliseconds. Several configurations and control methods are proposed for the DVR. In this paper, an overview of the DVR, its functions, configurations, components, compensating strategies and control methods are reviewed along with the device capabilities and limitations.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a cascaded H–bridge multilevel inverter based series active filter intended for installation on industrial and utility power distribution systems. The control strategy based on Synchronous Reference Frame theory is designed so that the voltage injected by active filter is able to mitigate the voltage sag, imbalance in the source voltage and reduce the harmonic content. The active power filter which can be used under the condition of voltage sag and unbalanced or distorted source voltages can compensate the harmonics, reactive and negative sequence currents.Simulations have been carried out on MATLAB/Simulink platform with various types of loads. The analysis and simulation results under unbalanced load and dynamic loading are presented in this paper.

The active power filter which can be used under the condition of unbalanced or distorted source voltages can compensate the harmonics, reactive and negative sequence components. Simulations have been carried out on MATLAB/Simulink platform with two types of loads. The analysis and simulation results under balanced three phase fault and dynamic load are presented in this paper.
