Power Quality Improvement Using Interline Voltage Controller

By Amit Kumar Jindal, Arindam Ghosh and Avinash Joshi


The concept of an interline voltage controller (IVOLCON) to improve the power quality in a power distribution system is discussed. An IVOLCON consists of two shunt voltage source converters (VSCs) that are joined through a common dc bus. The VSCs are connected to two different feeders. The main aim of the IVOLCON is to control the PCC (Point of Common Coupling) bus voltages of the two feeders to pre-specified magnitudes. The phase angles of the PCC bus voltages are obtained such that the voltage across the common dc link remains constant. The structure, control and capability of the IVOLCON are described. The efficacy of the proposed configuration has been verified through simulation studies using PSCAD/EMTDC for voltage sags and feeder outag
