Mitigation of Voltage Sags and Swells using PWM Switched Autotransformer

Authors(2) :-Raja Bhaiya Tiwari, Prof. Ajit Verma

In the modern world use of electrical energy is going to increases day by day. Myriad scholars and scientists are working in field of generation and utilisation. This paper is towards that goal. We are trying to improve the power quality problem and issues. Efficiency is main aspect of good energy. This work presents [1] a novel distribution-level voltage control system design for compensation of voltage sag and voltage swell condition in 3- phase power system. In the normal operating conditions the approach work in bypass mode and delivering utility power directly to load. Complexity reduces because of using less number of switches and has great compensating capability in comparison to commonly use other compensators. Its effectiveness and capability in instantly detecting and compensating [4] voltage sags and swells is verified via MATLAB and performance analysis of the system is presented for various levels of sag and swell.
