A STATCOM Controller for Grid Interfaced Fuel Cell Generation System


This paper presents the concepts of grid interconnection of non-conventional energy sources such as solar, wind plants, fuel generation systems that will give signifying moment in near future. Generally, these energy generating stations are interconnected at PCC for continent consumer applications and due to this the system has high economical, more complex and less reliability in efficiency point of view. The Generated power is transmitted through transmission lines from source to load. It will have some power quality problems like current unbalances and harmonics because of usage in non-linear load due to which the system will lose the reliability. This paper mainly concentrates on the reduction of ripples in line current. For this, we introduced a concept called shunt active filter. This improves the power quality from source to load by using P-Q control through shunt active filter from the output energy of PEM fuel cell in MATLAB Simulink environment.
