Power quality improvement for a grid connected wind energy system using SVC


Author(s): Mustak Ahamad and Vinay Kumar Tripathi

Abstract: Unbalancing due to reactive power leads to issues like deviation in voltage in conditions of load change and limitation in power transfer. Poor voltage quality is received due to reactance in AC loads which leads to heavy consumption of power which is reactive in nature. Thus in various power distribution systems, the reactance in transmission of power has caused a significant effect. Therefore to maintain the quality of electricity in the distribution system of electricity is currently a major issue. The term energy quality usually refers to maintain the best quality of energy in the production, transmission, distribution and use of energy.The power which is generated from renewable source of energy fluctuates because of the environmental conditions. Integrating these energy systems which are renewable can lead to problems which can affect the functioning of the grid. As we know that the nature of the wind energy is fluctuation thus injection of the wind power in the grid causes fluctuations. In our project we have shown that how the problems arise as the wind power source is connected to the grid. Therefore in our project we have proposed a scheme to mitigate the problems of power quality by using a facts device called SVC connected to PCC. We will then compare the output with the outputs without any compensating device at the end. Matlab Simulink is used to implement the control scheme for wind energy generation system which is connected to the grid.
