Abstract:


Background & Objective: Harmonic amplification is one of the primary issues in power system networks. The objective of this study is to manage the harmonic event and its significant effects on power quality. A new control approach that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) is proposed and applied to a Distribution Static Synchronous Compensator (DSTATCOM). DSTATCOM is a FACTS device that can achieve highly effective reactive power compensation to reduce and/or damp the harmonic amplification in power system networks.

Results & Conclusion: Simulation results are obtained using the MATLAB/Simulink package. The validity and effectiveness of using the AI approach are proven based on the DSTATCOM FACTs device with linear and nonlinear loads. Analysis results are discussed.

Keywords:

Neural network, power disturbances, power harmonic filters, power quality, voltage sag, harmonics damping.
