Abstract

This paper presents enhancement of load active power transfer using Unified Power Quality Conditioner-Photovoltaic-Battery Energy Storage (UPQC-PV-BES) system. This system is connected to a three phase three wire (3P3W) system with a voltage of 380 V (line to line) and 50 hertz. The proposed model is also compared with UPQC and UPQC-PV respectively. The parameters investigated are load voltage, load current, load active power, and efficiency. BES functions to save excess energy generated by PV, distribute it to the load, avoid interruption voltage, and regulate the charging process and energy utilization. The fuzzy logic controller (FLC) is proposed and compared with proportional integral (PI) method to control DC voltage variable and input DC reference voltage, to produce a reference current source on hysteresis current controller on shunt active filter in 12 disturbance scenarios (scns). In Scenario (Scn) 1 to 5, the 3P3W system uses three combinations of UPQC with PI controller and FLC, still keeps load voltage and load current above 300 V and 8 A. Whereas in Scn 6, only the UPQC-PV-BES with FLC is able to maintain load voltage and load current higher compared to UPQC and UPQC-PV combinations as 304.1 V and 8.421 A, respectively. In Scn 1 to 5, the 3P3W system uses three combinations of UPQC with PI controller and FLC, capable of producing load active power above 3600 W. Whereas in Scn 6, only a combination of UPQC-PV-BES with PI controller and FLC is able to produce a load voltage of 3720 W and 3700 W, respectively. In Scn 1 to 6, UPQC-PV-BES results in lower efficiency compared to using UPQC and UPQC-PV. However, in Scn 6, UPQC-PVBES with FLC is able to produce load voltage, load current, and load active power higher than UPQC-PV and UPQC. Thus, the UPQC-PV-BES model using FLC is able to compensate load voltage and load current, as well as to enhance load active power, especially for an interruption on source bus. This research is simulated using Matlab/Simulink.
