Upgrading Power Quality of a Distributed Generation Power System

M.Tech Research Scholar, Priyadarshini Institute of Technology & Management
Associate Professor, Priyadarshini Institute of Technology & Management

This paper presents analysis and improvement of power quality (voltage sag, voltage swell) performance of grid connected inverter used in distributed generation. The developed controller controls power supplied by the DGs at the PCC. The controller is designed to deliver current at unity power factor at PCC. An increase in reactive power demand and harmonics at PCC due to change of load and grid impedance variation, would affect the system voltage at PCC.This paper proposes the structure of the designed controller consists of output power with voltage control.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
