Modeling and Simulation of DSTATCOM by Improving Power Quality Problems
Even a few years back, the main concern of consumers in power system was the reliability of supply which is
defined as the continuity of electricity. It is however not only the reliability that consumers want these days, quality of
electricity supply is also very important for consumers. The term, electric power quality, broadly refers to maintaining a
nearly sinusoidal bus voltage at rated magnitude and frequency in an uninterrupted manner from the reliability point of view.
For a well-designed generating plant which generates voltages almost perfectly sinusoidal at rated magnitude and frequency,
power quality problems start with transmission system and stay valid until end users in distribution system.
