I owe a lot to the friends. Finally.M.Reddy and our beloved principal Dr. teaching and non-teaching staff of the Dept.S. i . I can’t say thank you enough for this tremendous support and help.L. Assistant Professor. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the people who have been instrumental in the successful completion of this project. of EEE for their direct and indirect support in the entire course of the project.Anand Kumar for giving us opportunity to study in this esteemed university and provide us all required resources. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Apart from the efforts of mine. Professor.S.Venu Gopala Rao. I express my heartfelt gratitude to our Chancellor Dr.A. Without his encouragement and guidance this project would not have materialized and implementation I deeply indebted to the Head of the Department Dr. I would like to show my appreciation to the guide Mr. I feel motivated and encouraged every time I attend his meetings.

flicker. The grid connected wind energy generation system for power quality improvement by using STATCOM-control scheme is simulated using SIMULINK in power system block set. ii . This project re-presents a control strategy for achieving maximum benefits from these grid. when installed in 3-phase 3-wire distribution systems. When the wind power is connected to an electric grid affects the power quality. The installation of wind turbine with the grid causes power quality problems are be determined. variation of voltage. The effects of the power quality measurements are the active power. ABSTRACT Usage of non. So these contain non-sinusoidal currents which in turn contain harmonic currents that interact with the impedance of the power distribution system to create voltage distortion that can affect both the distribution system equipment and loads connected to it. This project deals with improvement of power quality within the non-linear loads. This relives the main supply source from the reactive power demand of the load and the induction generator in this proposed scheme. reactive power. harmonics.interfacing inverters.linear loads has been increasing day-by-day which are connected in distribution systems utilizing power electronic converters. by using STATCOM the disturbances can be stabilized. and electrical behavior of switching operations.
