Also Available Domains Power Quality|Wind Power Generation

Project Code :TEPGPS722


The main objective of this project is to analysis the performance of the renewable energy based distribution system by using ANN tuned UPQC


In this project, the application of an ANN based UPQC to enhance the power quality of a three-phase Low-voltage network connected to a hybrid distribution generation (DG) system. The proposed work emphases the detailed performance analysis of a distributed generation system that integrates a solar PV and wind energy system by utilizing Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) with an artificial neural network (ANN) controller with respect to proportional-integral (PI) controller. The core objective of the proposed ANN is to offer good steady and dynamic state performance compared to the PID controller. The system called UPQC-ANN-RE feeds energy generated by a photovoltaic array and a wind turbine into the electrical grid and loads attached to a system of 3-phase 4-wire electrical distribution. In addition to inserting active/real power in the utility grid, the system of UPQC-ANN-RE functions as a UPQC, improving power quality signs e.g., voltage and current harmonics and power factor. A detailed analysis of the active-real power flow by converters is carried out to allow a good understanding of the operation of the UPQC-ANN-RE. The simulation outcomes are presented to assess the dynamic and steady state performance of the system of UPQC-ANN-RE connected to an electrical distribution system and to compare the consequences with the PI controller. The simulation results can be evaluated by using Matlab/Simulink Software.
