Comparison of Facts Controller for Power Quality Problems in Power System


The advancement in the technology, in the last decade has seen drastically increase in the electrical loads and multiplying in numbers of complexity of the devices that has low quality of distribution. A Power quality problem is an occurrence manifested as a nonstandard voltage, current or frequency that results in a failure or misoperation of end user equipment. This paper presents general problems of power quality such as sags and swells. In this paper, we observed the performance and also compared the operation and mitigation process of power quality problems by using UPQC and DPFC. The performance of these systems is observed in Matlab/Simulink.
Keywords: Distributed Power Flow Controllers, FACTS Controllers, Power Quality
