The reported paper on UPQC-VA min isconcentrated on the optimal VA load of the seriesinverter of UPQC especially during voltage sagcondition [25]–[28]. Since an out of phasecomponent is required to be injected for voltageswell compensation, the suggested VA loading inUPQC-VA min determined on the basis of voltagesag, may not be at optimal value. A detailedinvestigation on VA loading in UPQC-VA minconsidering both voltage sag and swell scenarios isessential. In the paper [15], the authors haveproposed a concept of power angle control (PAC) ofUPQC. The PAC concept suggests that with propercontrol of series inverter voltage the series invertersuccessfully supports part of the load reactive powerdemand, and thus reduces the required VA rating ofthe shunt inverter.

The injection of capacitive reactive voltage by theseries converter has the advantage of raising thesource voltage magnitude.UPQC-S CONTROLLER A detailed controller for UPQC based onPAC approach is described in [15]. In this paper, thegeneration of reference signals for series inverter isdiscussed. Note that, as the series inverter maintainsthe load voltage at desired level, the reactive powerdemanded by the load remains unchanged (assumingload on the system is constant) irrespective ofchanges in the source voltage magnitude.Furthermore, the power angle δ is maintained atconstant value under different operating conditions.Therefore, the reactive power shared by the seriesinverter and hence by the shunt inverter changes asgiven by (47) and (54). The reactive power sharedby the series and shunt inverters can be fixed atconstant values by allowing the power angle δ tovary under voltage sag/swell condition.The control block diagram for series inverteroperation is shown in Fig. 10. The instantaneouspower angle δ is determined using the proceduregive in [15]. Based on the system ratedspecifications, the value of the desired load voltageis set as reference load voltage k.

Table II gives the power losses associated with UPQC with and without PAC approach under different scenarios. The power loss is computed as the ratio of losses associated with UPQC to the total load power. This is an interesting outcome of the PAC approach even when the series inverter deals with both active and reactive powers due to δ shift between source and load voltages. One may expect to increase the power loss with the UPQC-S system. The reduction in the power loss is mainly due to the reduction in the shunt inverter rms current from 20.20 A (without PAC approach) to 13.18 A (with PAC approach). Second, the current through the series inverter (which is almost equal to the source current) remains unchanged. Similarly from the Table I, the power losses utilizing the PAC approach, during voltage sag and swell conditions, are observed lower than those without PACFig.8. Simulation results: active and reactive power approach. This study thus suggests that the PACflow through source, load, shunt, and series inverter approach may also help to reduce the power lossutilizing proposed UPQC-S approach under voltage associated with UPQC system in addition to thesag and swell conditions.

CONCLUSION In this paper, a new concept of controlling complex power (simultaneous active and reactive powers) through series inverter of UPQC is introduced and named as UPQC-S. The proposed concept of the UPQC-S approach is mathematically formulated and analyzed for voltage sag and swell conditions. The developed comprehensive equations for UPQC-S can be utilized to estimate the required series injection voltage and the shunt compensating current profiles (magnitude and phase angle), and the overall VA loading both under voltage sag and swell conditions. The simulation and experimental studies demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed concept of simultaneous voltage sag/swell and load reactive power sharing feature of series part of UPQC-S. The significant advantages of UPQC-S over general UPQC applications are: 1) the The reactive power supplied by the series multifunction ability of series inverter to compensateinverter during the voltage sag condition increases voltage variation (sag, swell, etc.) while laggingdue to the increased source current.
