Power quality compensation using universal power quality conditioning system

The aim of this letter is to present a universal power quality conditioning system (UPQS) named after unified power quality conditioner (UPQC), which is extended by adding a shunt active filter at the load side. Its main purpose is to compensate for supply voltage and load current imperfections, such as sags, swells, interruptions, imbalance, flicker, harmonics, reactive currents, and current unbalance. Converter and control analysis is presented together with results showing the UPQS modes of operation.
