What is Power quality ? • Definition : “Power quality problem is any power problem manifested in voltage, current, or frequency deviation that results in failure or misoperation of customer equipment”. • Power quality can be simply defined as shown in the interaction diagram: • Harmonics • Waveform Distortion • Voltage Sags • Voltage Swells • Blackouts/Brownouts • Transient • Arc Type • Temporal • Converter Type • Saturation Type • NLL-Analog/Digital Switching • Inrush • Overcurrent • Flickering
Why are we concerned about PQ The Main reasons behind the growing concern about PQ are: • North American industries lose Tens-of-Billions of Dollars every year in downtime due to power quality problems. (Electrical Business Magazine) • Load nonlinearities in rising and is expected to reach 50 to 70% in the year 2005 (Electric Power Research Institute) [Computers, UPS, fax machines, printers, fluorescent lighting, ASD, industrial rectifiers, DC drives, arc welders, etc). • The characteristics of the electric loads have changed. • Harmonics are continuous problem not transient or intermittent.
Power Quality Issue and Problems Power Quality issues can be roughly broken into a number of sub-categories: • Harmonics (sub, super and interharmonics); • Voltage swells, sags, fluctuations, flicker, and transients • Voltage magnitude and frequency deviation, voltage imbalance (3ph sys.) • Hot grounding loops and ground potential rise (GPR)–Safety & Fire Hazards • Monitoring and measurement.
Power Quality PQ Issue Harmonics and NLL issues: • The harmonic issue (waveform distortion) is a top priority to for all equipment manufacturer, users and Electric Utilities (New IEC, ANSI, IEEE Standards).

A FACTS based Dynamic Capacitor Scheme for Voltage Stabilization and Power Quality Enhancement
Abstract • Power Quality voltage problems in a power system may be either at system frequency or due to transient surges with higher frequency components. • These are called switching-type over-voltages which can be produced during opening or closing a switch and can be severe in certain cases. • The paper presents a low-cost FACTS based dynamic capacitor compensator DCC- scheme for voltage compensation and power quality enhancement. • The FACTS –DCC dynamic compensator is a member of a family of smart power low cost compensators developed by the First Author.
The growing use of nonlinear industrial type or inrush type electric loads can cause a real challenge to power quality for electric utilities around the world, especially in the current era of the unregulated power market where: competition, supply quality, security and reliability are key issues for any economic survival. Power Quality over voltage conditions in a power system may be either at system frequency or due to transient surges with higher frequency components. With EHV transmission systems, lightning is less of a problem because lightning surges rarely reach the impulse withstand voltage of the system equipment, e.g. 400 kV circuit breakers are impulse tested with an impulse 1425 kV , (1 us wave front to peak voltage and 50% of peak voltage). In EHV systems, switching surges thus become relatively more important . Introduction
Cont. / Introduction • The problem of the dynamic switching overvolatges affects also voltage stability of large non linear / motorized loads. It can increase the transmission line losses, and decrease the overall power factor . • Solid state AC controllers are widely Solid state AC controllers are widely used to convert AC power for feeding number of electrical loads such as adjustable speed drives, arc furnaces, power supplies etc. • Some of theses power converter controllers behave as nonlinear loads because they generally draw a non- sinusoidal current from AC sources. • The paper presents a new low cost FACTS based dynamic compensator scheme (DCC) for improving the voltage stability and enhancing power quality for hybrid linear/nonlinear and motorized load.

Controller Design Fig.4 shows the proposed novel Tri-loop (PI) Proportional plus Integral, dynamic error driven sinusoidal SPWM switching controller.
Cont. / Controller Design • The Tri-loop dynamic controller is used to stabilize the load bus voltage by regulated pulse width switching of the two IGBT solid state switches. The three regulating key loops are: • Loop 1 – the main loop for the dynamic voltage error using the RMS voltage at the load bus; this loop is to maintain the voltage at the load bus at a reference value by modulating the admittance of the compensator. • Loop 2– the dynamic error is using RMS dynamic load current. This loop is an auxiliary loop to compensate for any sudden electrical load excursions. • Loop 3 – the Harmonic ripple loop is used to provide an effective dynamic tracking control to suppress any sudden current ripples and compensate the AC system power transfer capability even under switching excursions.
The following Figures show the load voltage, current, and active power, reactive power, the active vs. reactive power, and the transmitted power loss; without the proposed low cost FACTS Dynamic Capacitor Compensator (DCC).

Conclusions • The paper presents a low cost FACTS Based Capacitor Compensator (DCC) for a radial 138 kV L-L sample test system. Digital simulation and comparison between without and with figures validated the following: • The receiving load bus voltage without the FACTS Based Capacitor Compensator (DCC) was about 0.66 pu when reaching steady state. Using the FACTS (DCC) compensator it is increased to about 0.96 pu (which is acceptable -5% from 1 pu). • The receiving load bus current is increased from 0.36 pu to 0.62 pu with the FACTS Based Capacitor Compensator (DCC). • The received active power at the hybrid load bus is increased from 0.36 pu to 0.95 pu. • The received reactive power at the hybrid load side is decreased from 0.2 pu to -0.5pu. • The receiving end power factor is also increased from 0.832 lag to 0.95 lag. • The transmitted power loss is decreased from 0.042 pu to 0.017 pu (about 40% less).
