The Roles of Filters in Power Systems and Unified Power Quality Conditioners

Abstract

Presents the roles of filters in power systems and investigates unified power quality conditioners (UPQCs). It discusses different types of nonlinear loads, broad classification of supply systems filters, and sub-classification of filters according to their topology into passive, active, and hybrid configurations. Block diagrams of active filters and detailed discussions and classifications of control methods for active and hybrid filters are included. UPQCs and their application and control are discussed. This chapter includes 14 application examples with solutions.
