Analysis of the Capacitor-Less D-STATCOM for Voltage Profile Improvement in Distribution Network with High PV Penetration

Also Available Domains Distribution Systems|Power Quality

Project Code :TEMAPS696


The main objective of this project is to improve the voltage profile in distribution network by using capacitor less D-STATCOM.


In this project, an alternative distribution static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM) based on a matrix converter (MC) for the low voltage distribution networks with high PV penetration is implemented. This technology can extend service life by using inductors for energy storage. The converter being studied provides ancillary services, including reactive power support; the impact on reliability, operational constraints, and electrical behavior is demonstrated. The contribution of this paper is a detailed analysis and impact study of the capacitor-less D-STATCOM in high PV penetration distribution networks. The significance of this paper is that it studies the behavior of the power electronics converter and its interaction with the power systems without assuming or neglecting details of either. Compensation effects and reliability comparisons between the proposed capacitorless D-STATCOM and the incumbent D-STATCOM technology are also studied in this paper. The simulation results can be evaluated by using Matlab/Simulink Software.

Keywords:  D-STATCOM, voltage profile, reactive power compensation, model predictive control, matrix converter, grid integration, renewable energy sources, high PV penetration, reliability of power electronics.
