What is Power quality ? Definition : “Power quality problem is any power problem manifested in voltage, current, or frequency deviation that results in failure or misoperation of customer equipment”. Power quality can be simply defined as shown in the interaction diagram: •Voltage Sags •Voltage Swells •Blackouts/Brownout s •Transient Voltage Quality Current Quality •Flickering •Waveform Distortion Power Quality •Arc Type •Temporal •Converter Type •Inrush •Overcurrent •Harmonics Electrical Grid Utility Nonlinear Loads Industrial/Commercial/Residential Consumers •Saturation Type •NLL-Analog/Digital Switching 6
What causes power quality problems? • Internal factors: faults o lightning strikes on transmission lines or distribution feeders, equipment failures etc External factors: Transformer energisation. Capacitor or feeder switching, Power electronic loads, Arc furnace and induction heating systems switching on or off of large loads etc.
Why are we concerned about PQ All nonlinear and time varying temporal type electric loads fall generally in two wide categories, namely the analog arc (inrush/saturation) type and digital converter (power electronic) switching type. Key Problems: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Damage to sensitive equipment Interference Malfunction Extra losses Personnel Safety issues Poor Utilization Poor Power Factor. 8
power quality audit of a business? • Does the facilities wiring and grounding meet code and more impor tantly is it adequate to meet their power needs from a power quality stand point ? • What is the quality of the ac voltage supplying the equipment ?

UPQC ? ? ? UPQC stands for Unified Power Quality Conditioner. UPQC is an active series / shunt power line conditioner. • It is used to compensate power quality issues such as Voltage sags, swells, Voltage imbalance, flicker, harmonics and reactive current. • It is a combination of a STATCOM as well as a series compensating stage connected before the load in series with the power network using a matching transformer.
Functions - UPQC? • Load voltage regulation be series voltage injection • Dynamic current Injection for reactive power compensation UPQC is used to compensate voltage sags and current harmonics, control input power factor near to unity as well as to regulate the load voltage. It can be installed by the electric utilities to damp out harmonic propagation caused by resonance with line impedance and passive shunt compensators.
Basic topology of UPQC ? • UPQC consists of 1 x 3 phase and 3 x 1 phase Voltage source converters sharing the same capacitive DC link. • The 3 phase converter will act as an Active Filter while the other is a series filter (Dynamic Voltage Regulator)
Control Strategy for the UPQC DC bus
Applications In Power/Utility Industry • Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR, 4MVA )
Applications In Power/Utility Industry • STATCOM Purpose: To provide reactive power for voltage regulation 48

Conclusions A Balanced and Cautious Application The acceptance of the new tools and technologies will take time, due to the computational requirements and educational barriers. The flexibility and adaptability of these new techniques indicate that they will become part of the tools for solving power quality problems in this increasingly complex electrical environment. The implementation and use of these advanced techniques needs to be done with much care and sensitivity. They should not replace the engineering understanding of the electromagnetic nature of the problems that need to be solved. 55
