Power Quality Enhancement using Custom Power Devices

Ghosh, Arindam & Ledwich, Gerard F. (2002) Power Quality Enhancement using Custom Power Devices. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston, USA.

Abstract

Power Quality Enhancement Using Custom Power Devices considers the structure, control and performance of series compensating DVR, the shunt DSTATCOM and the shunt with series UPQC for power quality improvement in electricity distribution. Also addressed are other power electronic devices for improving power quality in Solid State Transfer Switches and Fault Current Limiters. Applications for these technologies as they relate to compensating busses supplied by a weak line and for distributed generation connections in rural networks, are included. In depth treatment of inverters to achieve voltage support, voltage balancing, harmonic suppression and transient suppression in realistic network environments are also covered. New material on the potential for shunt and series compensation which emphasizes the importance of control design has been introduced. Power Quality Enhancement Using Custom Power Devices is appropriate for distribution engineers, graduate engineers and designers working in the area of power electronic applications for power systems. Sections of the book on power quality issues and generation connection make for a timely reference for undergraduates studying distribution engineering. Written for: Distribution engineers, graduate engineers and designers working in the area of power electronic applications for power systems, students

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
