Also Available Domains DC - DC Converters|DC - AC Converters

Project Code :TEPGPS576


The main objective of this project is to enhance the power quality of the distribution network by using Multilevel STATCOM-Compensated Based on Improved One-Cycle Controller.


There are several ways to reduce and compensate for voltage disturbances. One of the methods is to use a Multilevel STATCOM. Multilevel inverters are widely used in various parts of the power system and industry due to advantages, such as appropriate output waveform (voltage and current). There are numerous controllers for multilevel STATCOM control. One of the simple and economy controllers is the one-cycle controller, which is usually used in DC / DC and DC / AC converters. In this paper, a new structure is proposed to improve the performance of the one-cycle controller. Improvements include voltage sag and swell, voltage disturbances, harmonics, and short-term outages. To demonstrate the performance of the proposed controller, the multilevel STATCOM is also tested and compared with conventional PWM control. The simulation results show that multilevel STATCOM will correct the disturbances.

Keywords: Multilevel STATCOM, one cycle control, PWM control, voltage disturbances, multi-bus system, voltage sag, and voltage swell.
