Unified Power Quality Conditioner
(UPQC) contains shunt active power filter and series active power filter and sharing a common DC capacitor.  The series component of the UPQC is used for
mitigation of voltage related power quality problems like: voltage sags and
swells, flicker, voltage unbalance and harmonics etc. It replaces voltages in
order to maintain the load voltages at a desired level, balanced and distortion
free. The shunt component is applicable for mitigating current relates power
quality problems caused by the non linear, sensitive loads such as: poor power

The
integrated controller of the series APF and shunt APF of the UPQC to offer the
compensating voltage reference Vf and compensating current reference
If. UPQC combines of both a Distribution Static Compensator (DSTATCOM) and Dynamic
Voltage Restorer (DVR) together. The system configuration of a UPQC is shown in the
Figure 3.1 given below.

3.2. Steady State Equivalent Analysis of UPQC 23

The equivalent circuit of UPQC is shown in
the figure 3.2. An ideal controlled voltage source is connected in series in
the circuit and
current source is connected in shunt of the circuit
so that the circuit works same as that of the UPQC. It is controlled in such a
way that the voltage at load bus is always
sinusoidal and at desired magnitude. Therefore the voltage injected by series
active power filter must be equal to the
difference between the supply voltage and the ideal load voltage. Thus the
series active power filter acts as controlled voltage
source. The function of shunt active power filter is to maintain the dc link
voltage at constant level. In addition to this the shunt active power filter provides the VAR required by the
load, such that the input power factor will be unity and only fundamental
active power will be supplied by the source 23

3.3. Mathematical
analysis of UPQC IN Distribution system

The equivalent circuit of UPQC is shown in the Figure 3.2.  In the UPQC representation it has two basic
configurations: series part in source side and shunt part in load side of
distribution system. From the equivalent circuit representation the ideal
controlled voltage source is connected in series in the circuit and current
source is connected in shunt of the circuit so that the circuit works. In the
mathematical analysis are the UPQC considering different assumption. Taking the
load voltage as a reference phasor and considering lagging power factor in the
