Abstract

Problem statement: A Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) with fast reference voltage generation to correct and regulate unbalance voltage in three-phase system was proposed. Approach: The compensation algorithm was not based on three-symmetrical component decomposition so the controller can yield a fast response that was essential in such a critical real time control work. The reference voltages were fed to the SMC, which was a robust closed loop controller. Results: The proposed algorithm and control scheme of series active filter could correct and regulate unbalance voltage in three-phase system under arbitrary fault conditions of the utility supply. Conclusion: A design example and its simulation results proved the concept and validated the proposed algorithm.
