# Compensation of balanced and unbalanced voltage sags using dynamic voltage restorer based on fuzzy polar controller.

IntroductionMost of problems on power quality are voltage sags and momentary power loss. Longer term outages are rare. Two important parameters of voltage sags are its magnitude and time duration [1].

Commonly, restoring method using Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is done by compensating the voltage sags using series AC voltage [2,3]. Another method uses injection in phase with the voltage source during voltage sags [4]. When using this method, the size of required energy storage can be minimized, but it can cause phase

shifting compared to pre-voltage sags.

Voltage sags caused by 3 phase short circuit can be compensated by using DVR based on Back Propagation Neural Network (NN) [5,6]. This method compensates the voltage sags perfectly, but time response is longer. Conventional Fuzzy Logic Controller reduces the time response, but it requires many membership functions [7].

Many topics of propose to research are done to minimize the number of membership function, such as fuzzy polar controller. Hiyama shows that the membership function of conventional fuzzy logic controller can be minimized using fuzzy polar method [8].

This paper presents a design of DVR based on fuzzy polar controller to compensate both balanced and unbalanced voltage sags on electric distribution systems.

Dynamic Voltage Restorer

The DVR is a custom power device that is connected in series with line of distribution system as shown in Fig. 1. The DVR uses semiconductor devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) and maintains voltage applied to the load by injecting three single-phase output voltages that its magnitude, phase, and frequency can be controlled [5]. These three phase voltages are injected in synchronized with the voltages in the distribution system.

[FIGURE 1 OMITTED]

In most sags compensation technique, DVRs are applied to inject active power into distribution line during of disturbance. Therefore, the capacity of energy storage will limit the compensation process, especially for sags with long duration.

Typically, DVR consists of three phase inverter, energy storage, controller and booster transformer. In this paper, fuzzy polar method is applied as a controller. Three phase inverter is controlled by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM).

Figure 2 illustrates the test system in the simulation. This figure shows the sensitive load voltage on distribution system which uses [DELTA]-Y transformer regulated by the DVR based on fuzzy polar controller. Blocking zero sequence component is represented by transformer 2. Sensitive load voltage is represented by load 2. The input to the fuzzy polar controller is voltage of bus A. The DVR injects voltage to Bus B through booster transformer. Faults are applied on Bus C which causes voltage sag on Bus A. When voltage sag occurs on Bus A, DVR will take action to inject active power to Bus B. Therefore, Load 2 will be free from voltage sags disturbance.

Control Technique

DVR can be controlled by using any kind of the controllers. In this study, PI and Fuzzy Polar controller were applied to control the DVR and also for comparison studies. The performance of both PI and Fuzzy Polar controller were compared.

In basic applications, Fuzzy controller is used to substitute the conventional PI compensator [9, 10]. In this study, fuzzy polar is utilized as a controller on DVR. Fuzzy polar method have been developed for the application of control on electric power system [8, 11,12,13].

Fuzzy polar consists of some parameters such as proportional-derivative controller. Three basic parameters are derivative multiplier, As, the overlap angle [alpha] of the angle membership function, and the fuzzy distance level for the radial member, Dr. The operating point of polar coordinate can be shown in Eq.(1) to (3).

p(k) =[Zs(k) AsZa(k)] (1)

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII.] (3)

This controller is fed the input signal Zs and takes the derivative of this signal to find Za. Three other factors involved in the controller are maximum signal control Umax, sampling time T, and delay time DT. These parameters are often determined using external criteria. The defuzzification rule for the controllers is shown in Eq. (4) [8],

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII.] (4)

Polar form of fuzzy polar is shown in Figure. 3, and fuzzy variables are defined in Eq. (1) to (3). Umax represent maximum permitted control signal. Membership functions of fuzzy polar are shown in Figure 4. Figure. 5 is simplified model of fuzzy polar with single input and single output. Actually, there is only one input, Zs. But, it needs derivative signal Za to convert into the polar coordinate as shown in Figure. 3. The output of fuzzy polar U is determined using Eq. (4).

Figure. 6 is the detailed simulation model of voltage regulator block in Figure. 2. Block polar d and polar q in Figure. 6 are used to convert signal to polar coordinate using Eq. (1) to (3). So, sensing signal in abc coordinate is converted into dq coordinate using Park Transformation. The direct axis voltage error [DELTA]Vd and its derivative [DELTA]Vd' are considered as the first input fuzzy polar controller. The quadrature axis voltage error [DELTA]Vq and its derivative [DELTA]Vq' are the second fuzzy polar controller. The voltage reference of the regulator is Vdref = 1 and Vqref = 0.

Simulation Results

Simulations are perfomed in Matlab environment. Fuzzy Polar controller method is simulated using M-file. The total time of the simulation is 4 cycles and the results of simulation are compared with DVR based on PI controller. The parameters of PI controller and Fuzzy Polar controller can be shown in Table 1.

In this simulation, short circuit during 2 cycles is applied at 0.02 second on Bus C, which causes balanced voltage sags on Bus A. DVR is installed to maintain the voltage at sensitive load, Load 2. 30%, 50% and 70% voltage sags are applied to examine the performance of the DVR. Figure. 7 shows the result when the 50% voltage sags is applied. Figure. 8 shows the voltage time response with DVR based on Fuzzy Polar controller, and Figure. 9 by PI conctroller.

[FIGURE 7 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 8 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 9 OMITTED]

The voltage recovery by polar control shown in Figure. 8 is about 98%, and by PI in Figure. 9 is about 95%. Line to line, line to line to ground fault and single line to ground fault in 2 cycle duration are applied at 0.02 second on Bus C, which causes unbalanced voltage sags on Bus A. The results of compensation are shown in Figure 10 to 15.

[FIGURE 10 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 11 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 12 OMITTED]

The voltage recovery by polar control shown in Figure. 11 is about 97.5%, and by PI in Figure. 12 is about 97% .

[FIGURE 13 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 14 OMITTED]

[FIGURE 15 OMITTED]

The voltage recovery by polar control shown in Figure. 14. is about 98%, and by PI in Figure. 15. is about 95.6%.

Another simulations were done to study about the effectiveness of the proposed controller. DVR based on PI controller is also simulated for comparison studies with proposed method. The summary of these simulations can be seen in Table 2. The results of simulation in Table 2 show that DVR based on Fuzzy Polar Controller corrects both of balanced and unbalanced voltage sags properly.

The summary of error in these simulations are also shown in Figure. 16. Figure. 17 shows averaged error of the compensation.

From the simulations it is clearly recognized that DVR by fuzzy polar works better than DVR by PI controller. Averaged error by fuzzy polar controller is 2.6% and by PI controller is 4.9%. Fuzzy polar controller can work properly for both balanced and unbalanced voltage sags.

Simulation results show that the proposed method compensates both balanced and unbalanced voltage sags better than PI controller. Averaged error by fuzzy polar controller is 2.6% and by PI controller is 4.9%.

Further study for multifunction of DVR, voltage sags correction and harmonics active filter is now on going to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
