Application of Electric Springs for Reactive Power Compensation on Load Side

Authors(5) :-Reshma V P, Pallavi S, Varun K B, Benson Zachariah, Syed Mohammed

The use of renewable energy sources is gaining a vital role in the recent years. But due to their intermittent nature, they cause disturbance or voltage fluctuations. The simple control of electric spring is a new smart grid technology for mitigating variations caused by renewable energy sources. The stabilization of the voltage at the load side is the main aim which can be obtained through electric springs. The simulation results built by MATLAB/SIMULINK show the voltage waveform on power grids with or without electric spring.
