Abstract

Voltage sag is considered to be the most serious problem of power quality. It is caused by faults in the power system or by the starting of large induction motors. Voltage sag causes about 80% of the power quality problems in power systems. One of the main reasons for voltage sag is short circuit fault, which can be compensated for by a distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM) as an efficient and economical flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) device. In this paper, compensation of this voltage sag using DSTATCOM is reviewed, in which a sliding mode control (SMC) technique is employed. The results of this control system are compared with a P+Resonant control system. It will be shown that this control system is able to compensate the voltage sag over a broader range compared to other common control systems. Simulation results are obtained using PSCAD/EMTDC software and compared to that of a similar method. View Full-Text
