The topology and control are discussed of a distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM) that can be operated flexibly in the voltage or current control mode. In the voltage control mode, the DSTATCOM can force the voltage of a distribution bus to be balanced sinusoids. In the current control mode, it can cancel distortion caused by the load, such that current drawn by the compensated load is pure balanced sinusoid. Both these objectives are achieved, irrespective of unbalance and harmonic distortions in load currents or source voltages. The chosen DSTATCOM topology includes three single-phase voltage source inverters connected in parallel to a filter-capacitor, which allows the high-frequency component of the current to pass. A switching control scheme is proposed, and its suitability is proved for this problem. The proposed scheme is verified using computer simulation studies

Search Google Scholar™

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.
