Abstract—This paper researches profoundly on the coordinated control of UPQC (Unified Power Quality Conditioner). By analyzing the radical reasons of coupling effect between UPQC series unit and shunt unit, a simple and practical coordinated control strategy for UPQC series unit and shunt unit is proposed, i.e. by introducing corresponding voltage corrective link directly to UPQC series unit and shunt unit respectively, and by suitable mode of PWM in addition, the coupling effect between its series unit and shunt unit is eliminated fully. Therefore, the complex degree of the whole UPQC control system is simplified greatly. Combined with a power quality waveform tracking method based on H∞ control, the coordinated control between UPQC series unit and shunt unit is implemented by the proposed strategy. The experimental results indicate that the method can eliminate the steady-state phase shift and amplitude attenuation of the voltage tracking compensation of series unit and the current tracking compensation of shunt unit for UPQC. Finally, the unified power quality multi-function control of UPQC is achieved. Index terms—Power quality, Custom Power, UPQC, PWM, Coordinated control

I. INTRODUCTION

ITH the increase in the complexion of the power distribution system and the loads, it is very possible that several kinds of power quality disturbances are in a distribution system or a power load simultaneously, and it is therefore important to introduce UPQC (Unified Power Quality Conditioner). UPQC is the emerging device of Custom Power, which combines the functions of series voltage compensator, shunts current compensator and energy storage device. Multiple power quality regulation functions are implemented in UPQC simultaneously, with a higher performance ratio. In [1]-[8], several control methods have been applied in UPQC. Fig.1 shows a typical main circuit topological structure of UPQC [9], the inner department of imagined line is UPQC, which is composed by series unit and shunt unit as well as DC storage unit. The series unit has the functions of DVR (Dynamic Voltage Restorer) and DUPS (Dynamic Uninterruptible Power Supply), while the shunt unit has the functions of SVG (Static Var Generator) and APF (Active Power Filter), and the energy storage unit has the functions of BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) or super

UPQC series unit and shunt unit cannot only operate independently to realize their own functions, but also be unified to realize their synthetic functions. To control the UPQC series unit and shunt unit as a whole, it is necessary to solve its coordinated control to make full use of its great synthetic functions. In view of this, a coordinated control strategy of UPQC series unit and shunt unit is proposed, and its validity is testified. In addition, the controller design of UPQC series unit and shunt unit is based on H∞ model matching technology about power quality waveform tracking compensation, which has been stated in detail in [10]. Besides, other control methods such as deadbeat control also can be applied into the proposed coordinated control strategy to design the synthetic controller of UPQC. II. CONTROL METHOD BASED ON H ∞ MODEL MATCHING TECHNOLOGY ABOUT POWER QUALITY WAVEFORM TRACKING COMPENSATION The proposed method is based on H∞ standard control of model matching system that is shown in Fig.2 to design the H∞ optimal controller of power quality. In Fig.2, M is a known ideal model transfer function, which can be elected as the transfer function of general filter; P is a known controlled object—power quality regulator; K is a controller to be designed. As is shown, ρ is weighting factor, z is controlled output, the measure output is addressed as y=(w-v), external input signal is w, and control signal is u. The H∞ optimal controller K can be conveniently obtained by this H∞ standard control problem. The H∞ optimal control problem is to evaluate a regular real rational controller K, to keep the closed-loop system internally stable and to minimize the H∞ norm of the transfer function matrix Tzw(s), viz.

UPQC series unit and shunt unit can respectively follow their own H∞ optimal control way to operate properly while considering the working condition of each other. DC capacitance voltage is affected by the inverter PWM modulation of the series unit and shunt unit. which is presented in Fig. by the sampling value of the inverter modulating wave uDP in the series and shunt units obtained previously and from (7). by introducing a voltage corrective link considering the voltage compensation of the series unit to the control signal of the shunt unit. the DC capacitance voltage of energy storage unit should be greater than the peak value of the network voltage. and a better compensated performance.14. each unit can get the other’s real-time operating conditions. while the output of the inverter is also affected by the DC capacitance voltage fluctuation. so the capacitance voltage is designed at a proper value that greater than the peak value of the network voltage to assure the inverter operating right. then there is a greater tracking ability of PWM waveform. UPQC series unit and shunt unit can operate coordinately. So. and then the PWM impulse group obtained from (7) will not be affected by the fluctuation of capacitance voltage Uc. Current waveform Curve 1: ideal compensated waveform Curve 2: compensated waveform after PWM control Fig. the capacitance voltage Uc is also sampled. but the maximum value of the capacitance voltage is limited by the capacitor pressurization and the IGBT pressurization.
