A dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) is a power-electronic controller that can protect sensitive loads from disturbances in the supply system. In this paper, it is demonstrated that this device can tightly regulate the voltage at the load terminal against imbalance or harmonic in the source side. The behavior of the device is studied through steady-state analysis, and limits to achievable performance are found. This analysis is extended to the study of transient operation where the generation of the reference voltage of the DVR is discussed. Once the reference signals are generated, they are tracked using a switching band scheme. A suitable structure in which the DVR is realized by voltage-source inverters (VSIs) is also discussed. Particular emphasis to the rating of this device is provided. Extensive simulation results are included to illustrate the operating principles of a DVR.

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.
