Design Of UPQC Using V2G Technology
Modern power system consists of wide range of power electronic equipments. These equipments act as non-linear
loads which injects harmonics in the system. Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) is One of the FACT’S device that
tackles both current and voltage related problems. UPQCs are not widely used due to their excessive price. This paper
describes a method to analyze the reactive and active power transaction capabilities of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
(PHEV) in a Vehicles to Grids (V2G) mode of operation, which gives a low-cost solution for designing a UPQC using
PHEV charging station. A third order dynamic battery model is used as the substitute to dc link ofUPQC in proposed work.
Simulations have been executed in MATLAB SIMULINK.
