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


Author(s): Mustak Ahamad and Vinay Kumar Tripathi

Abstract: The unbalancing due to reactive power leads to issues like deviation in voltage in conditions of load change and limitation of power transfer. Reactance in AC loads leads to heavy consumption of reactive power which leads to poor voltage quality. Thus the reactance in transmission of power has caused a significant effect on various power distribution systems [1]. Maintaining the quality of electricity in the distribution system of electricity is currently a major concern. The term energy quality usually refers to maintaining the best quality of energy in the production, transmission, distribution and use of energy. The generated power from renewable energy source is always fluctuating due to environmental conditions. Integrating these renewable sources to grids to any considerable degree can expose the system to issues that need attention lest the functionality of the grid be impaired. In the same way wind power injection in to an electric grid affects the power quality due to the fluctuation nature of the wind. This project shows the existence of the power quality problems due to the installation of wind turbine with grid. In order to mitigate these power quality problems, this project proposes a scheme based on FACTS device called SVC which is connected at a PCC. The proposed model is compared with the model that do not use any compensating device .Performance of the system with BESS under load variations and Fault ride through capability of the svc is also analysed. This control scheme for the grid connected wind energy generation system to improve power quality is simulated using MATLAB or SIMULINK in power system block set.
