Abstract

The application of active power conditioners to tackle power quality problems has become a matured subject. This paper is based on a unified approach for load and source compensation using Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC). Performance of this UPQC has been evaluated with a typical industrial load with realistic parameters supplied by a polluted distribution network. The system performance for current harmonics, voltage harmonics, voltage sag and voltage swell has been evaluated. The MATLAB / Simulink based simulations are provided which support the functionality of the UPQC.
