Abstract: The quality of power has become more important in the utility newlinesystems and industry. The quality of the power tends to have a direct newlineeconomic impact on customers and suppliers. Nowadays, standards and newlineregulations are imposed to maintain the power quality parameters at the newlinePoint of Common Coupling (PCC). Growing consumer demands lead to newlinepower quality issues. Many customers may experience severe technical and newlineeconomic impacts due to power quality problems such as voltage sag, newlineswell, harmonics and long voltage interruptions. Therefore, the newlineimplementations of innovative and cost-effective compensation techniques newlineare needed. newline Compensation methodology implemented by using high speed newlinepower electronic devices is an effective solution for the power quality newlineissues. A custom power device such as Photovoltaic based Unified Power newlineQuality Conditioner (PV-UPQC) is one of the most versatile devices with newlinethe prominent capability of improving the quality of voltage and current at newlinethe point of installation in distribution and industrial power systems. Dispersion Generation (DG) is becoming popular in distribution newlinesystems, because of the huge availability of the renewable energy sources. newlineIt will provide large active power to customers in the remote areas and newlineassist load sharing along with the utility systems. One of the popular DG systems is Photovoltaic (PV) system and is being increasingly used to tap newlinethe huge resource of the sun and will play a key role in future sustainable newlineenergy system. The photovoltaic arrays are interfaced in the DC and AC newlinedistribution systems by using power electronic circuits. The DC-DC boost newlineconverter is used to convert the DC output voltage of the PV array to the newlinevoltage level in the DC link. This research work is primarily concentrated on compensation of newlinevoltage sag, voltage swell, harmonics and long voltage interruptions. The newlineproposed PV-UPQC system improves the power quality in power newlinedistribution systems using advance control strategy.
