Abstract

This paper deals with the performance of UPFC to the power quality in the electrical system. UPFC is used to improve the transient stability in power system. UPFC can control the power flow in the electrical power system. Unified Power Flow Controller can easily control the real and reactive power flow. For getting without significant losses in the function of electrical system to synchronization of voltage frequency and phase. The following factors are affecting the power quality in electrical system they are voltage sag, voltage variation ,interruption ,swells ,brownout ,distortion, harmonic noise ,voltage spikes ,voltage flicker etc.Comparing to normal standards these factors can produced the deviation in the power. UPFC can control the parameters like series impedance, shunt impedance, line voltage, current, active power, reactive power, oscillation damping etc. UPFC is able to controlling the parameters affecting from power flow simultaneously or selectively. Power factor is increased by using UPFC instead of STATCOM. By installing UPFC in the system we can improve the reliability and quality of power supply .Using inverter and rectifier the circuit model is developed. Simulation and Matlab results are given to validate the performance of UPFC.
