Abstract

This paper presents a solar dynamic voltage restorer for hybrid series-connected solar-wind farms to mitigate the power quality problems. The operating region of the proposed hybrid system is derived and studied through graphical analysis. Upon examination of the system's operation under various grid conditions, the feasibility of solar PV power injected into the grid is verified. It is further proved that the series injection of voltage is also capable of mitigating the effects of voltage sag/swell, and unbalance, which have adverse effects on wind-connected induction generators. Further, the effectiveness of Solar DVR to mitigate the fault ride-through capability of the wind farm is analyzed. The non-requirement for an energy storage device such as a battery is also validated. A control system for the series PV inverter is proposed and the computer simulations are performed to confirm the efficacy and ride-through capability of the system.
