(1. School of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Huazhong University of SCI&TECH, Wuhan, 430074, China; 2. School of Applied Geophysics & Space Information, China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, 430074,China) Abstract This paper introduces the p-q-r instantaneous power voltage for load and shunt compensator as current source theory firstly, and then an improved p-q-r theory is proposed. Based compensating the harmonics, reactive current in load. The other on this theory, it presents a composite control strategy of unified is direct control strategy in which series compensator work as power quality conditioner (UPQC), which is the combination of the sinusoidal current source shunt compensator as sinusoidal ordinary direct and indirect control strategy. An algorithm of voltage source. The power factor of power line can be unity calculating the compensation current and the compensation voltage because of series compensation current having the same phase are introduced. A principle analysis of the proposed control strategy with system voltage and the load can get balance, rated sinusoidal is described in particular. Meanwhile the control formulas on the p-q-r coordinate are deduced in detail. The control schematic voltage. Employing this strategy, series compensator isolate the diagram based on these formulas is presented. Simulation results voltage disturbance between power line and load as well as shunt show that, when the UPQC applying such control strategy is used for compensator prevent the reactive power, harmonic and neutral the compensation of the nonlinear and unbalance three-phase current on the load side into power line .Additionally, another four-wire system, the harmonic current, reactive power of loads as benefit from the direct control strategy is that it is not necessary to well as neutral current are compensated well, load voltage get change the work mode when power line dumping or restoring, balanced and rated, power factor of power source is about unity, for shunt compensator all along is controlled as sinusoidal which verified the effectiveness of applying such control strategy in UPQC. voltage source .[4]- [8] Key word improved p-q-r theory three-phase four-wire system This paper presents a method of detecting compensation signals UPQC the composite control strategy and a control scheme based on it. Because the p-q-r transformation is sophisticated, this paper presents a improved INTRODUCTION p-q-r algorithm, which simplify the calculations. Based on the The use of nonlinear and impact loads bring about harmonics improved p-q-r theory, the calculating method of compensating and reactive power loading variance in power system, which has current and voltage are proposed. With introducing its principle a strong impact on the other loads in the same system. and control schematic diagram in detail, a composite control Employment of UPQC (unified power quality conditioner) could strategy combining of the ordinary direct and indirect control decrease impact on transmission and distribution harmonics and neutral-line current caused by unbalance and nonlinear load, strategy is presented, too. Simulation results using MATLAB/ enhance custom power quality meanwhile supply balance and SIMULINK show that the harmonic current and reactive power sinusoidal voltage to load and enhance power distribution of load as well as neutral current are compensated well .So the reliability [1]-[3] proposed strategy is feasible and effective. Fig.1 shows the circuit configuration of the proposed UPQC, THE IMPROVED P-Q-R THEORY which is a three-phase four-wire UPQC, being formed of series compensator and shunt compensator.

such as the system voltage and current vector, x p and xq include the dc and ac components, while xr include only ac components. The dc components come from the positive sequence component of x , as well as the ac components from negative sequence and harmonic components of it. The value of dc components of xq is decided by its phase-shifted angle with the positive sequence component of reference voltage.[9]- [11] From above analyses it can be seen that the calculation of p-q-r transformation is sophisticated. Especially, if p-q-r coordinate reference earef , ebref and ecref are sinusoidal and balanced, as shown in Fig.2(c) ,the components in axis after transformation are satisfied with (5)

The compensating purpose of UPQC includes two aspects. One is assuring the balance and rated loads voltage even if sag, wave, distortion or unbalance occurred in source voltages, the other is that to supply the power line of balanced and sinusoidal current with same phase as the source positive voltage even if loads current are reactive, distortion or unbalance. Thus under the ideal situation, both source currents and load voltages are balance and sinusoidal with the same phase as source positive voltage. If chose the positive sequence components of source voltage

condition, from equation (3) we can know that both source currents and load voltages are include only the dc components on p axis after p-q-r transform. This method has definite physical significance and can simplify the calculation thus the compensating purpose of UPQC can be direct described as that to compensate the AC component at p axis , q axis components and r axis component of source currents and load voltages so that both of them have only dc components This paper chose

The q axis lies on - coordinates, having something to do with phase-shifted angle with the reference voltage and harmonic wave deviated from it, other than the r axis relates to zero sequence components, such as zero sequence voltage and or the neutral current.

Fig.3 shows the series compensator equivalent circuit. For the series compensator, according the control purpose, its primary side voltage should be the difference between source voltage and rated load voltage, and its current be in phase with positive sequence source voltage. Because of choosing the positive sequence component of source voltage as the coordinate reference voltage, the dc component of loads active current comes from its positive sequence component, which should be in-phase with supply current. So it can be seen that supply current should offer load the positive sequence current component , namely should contain the ilp ,Because of choosing the positive sequence component of source voltage as the coordinates reference voltage, the dc component of active current of loads comes from its positive sequence component ,which should be in-phase with supply current. So it can be seen that supply current should offered load the positive sequence current component ,namely isp should contain the ilp .In addition supply current should contain the active current which is consumed by the compensator as well as maintain voltage constant on dc side . Because the value of C1 is very small, current flowing through it as well as the series transformer magnetization current can be neglected. Considering the transformer ration n2 : n1 N ,the current supplied by series compensator can be calculated by (10). * i1*p isp / N ilp / N I comp

sinusoidal , balance and in-phase with the positive sequence component of source voltage ,which is supplied by shunt compensator .On the other hand ,because the source supply only the dc current component ilp for the load ,the harmonic and reactive current of load have to be supplied by shunt compensator ,thus the output current of shunt compensator can be expressed by (17) * i3 p ilp

Fig.8(a) shows the source and load voltage under this condition. It is obviously that load voltage is balance and rated after compensation. Because load current is unbalance and contain harmonic component ,the output current of shunt compensator i3 p , i3q and i3r include the current component generated by the

unbalance and nonlinearity of load ,which known as ilp , ilq and ilr , as shown in Fig.8(c), (d) and(e).For the series compensator ,its output voltage vcp , vcq and vcr are the difference between source voltage and rated load voltage ,which described as the given * * * value of compensator voltage vcp , vcq and vcr . Fig.8(k), (l) and


(m) shows the frequency spectrum of load current, source current and load voltage respectively. The THD of source current is 0.38%, which is better than that of load current. The load voltage is rated with low THD value. As shown in Fig.7 and Fig.8,it can be seen that UPQC performance well when proposed control strategy is supplied in it. . CONCLUSION This paper describes a new control strategy used in a proposed UPQC, which mainly compensate voltage sag and swell, reactive power, and harmonics. To simply the calculation, this paper improves the ordinary p-q-r theory. Based on the improved p-q-r theory, the control strategy, combining the ordinary direct and indirect control strategy, is proposed. The block diagram of control system is proposed in particular. The simulation results shows that, when unbalance and nonlinear occur in load current or unbalance and sag in source voltage ,the above control algorithms eliminate the impact of distortion and unbalance of load current on the power line, making the power fact of it unity. Meanwhile, the series compensator isolate the loads voltages and source voltage, shunt compensator provide three-phase balanced and rated voltages of sine for loads. All above mentioned have realized the function of UPQC. REFERENCES
