Abstract

This study describes the derivation of an analytical model and simulation for the unified series-shunt compensator (USSC) for investigating power quality in power distribution system. The USSC simulation comprises of two 12-pulse inverters which were connected in series and in shunt with the system. A generalized sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) switching technique was developed in the proposed controller for fast control action of the USSC. Simulations were carried out using the PSCAD/EMTDC electromagnetic transient programs to examine the performance of the USSC model. Simulation results from the proposed model demonstrated the performance of the USSC and its effectiveness for voltage sag compensation, flicker reduction, voltage unbalance mitigation, power flow control and harmonics elimination.
