Power Quality in Grid Connected Renewable Energy Systems: Role of Custom Power Devices
Khadem, Shafiuzzaman Khan; Basu, Malabika; Conlon, Michael
This paper deals with the technical review of power quality problems associated with the renewable based distributed generation systems and how the custom power devices like STATCOM, DVR and UPQC play important role in power quality improvement. IEEE and IEC standard for the grid connected renewable energy systems are one of the critical point of interest for the selection of custom power devices. Special attention has been given on the compensation of reactive power, harmonic current and voltage fluctuation during the interconnected as well as islanding mode of operation. As the solar and wind are the most abundant resources therefore our point of interest are limited to PV and Wind energy systems only.
