ABSTRACT Based on the research on several multilevel basic topologies, this paper presents a general type of multilevel hybrid topology and introduces several selectable degrees of freedom. No matter what change in the hybrid topology it can be resulted in the combination and selection of the degrees of freedom, which expands the topology collection of the multilevel inverter. According to the degrees of freedom, all the cascaded topologies have been unified and several new types of hybrid topologies have been constructed. Based on the research on the hybrid topologies and multi-carrier SPWM (Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation) used for the multilevel inverter, this paper presents the hybrid modulation strategies for hybrid topologies. Simulation results prove that hybrid topologies and corresponding modulation strategies are effective, which lay the foundation for practical application of hybrid multilevel inverter topologies.

In this paper a novel configuration of unified power flow controller (UPFC) which consists of two shunt converters and a series capacitor is proposed. In this configuration, a series capacitor is used between two shunt converters to inject desired series voltage. As a result, it is possible to control the active and reactive power flow as same as the conventional configuration of UPFC. The main advantage of the proposed UPFC in comparison with the conventional configuration is injection of a series voltage waveform with a very low total harmonic distortion (THD). Also, using two shunt converters instead of a series and a shunt converters, results in reduction of design efforts and simplification of control, measuring and protection strategies. An optimal control strategy based on the discrete model of converters is applied to shunt converters. The proposed UPFC is simulated using PSCAD/EMTDC and MATLAB software and simulation results are presented to validate the effectiveness of the novel configuration of UPFC. Also, the experimental results which are obtained from an experimental set-up are presented. Keywords: Unified power flow controller; Shunt converter; Series converter; Multilevel converter

Shukla, A. Ghosh, A. Dept. of Electr. Eng., Indian Inst. of Technol., Kanpur

This paper appears in: Power Engineering Society General Meeting, 2007. IEEE Issue Date: 24-28 June 2007 On page(s): 1 - 8 Location: Tampa, FL ISSN: 1932-5517 Print ISBN: 1-4244-1298-6 INSPEC Accession Number: 10300838 Digital Object Identifier: 10.1109/PES.2007.385915 Date of Current Version: 23 July 2007

ABSTRACT In this paper, performances of the two unified power flow controllers (UPFC) based on diode-clamped multilevel inverter (DCMLI) and flying capacitor multilevel inverter (FCMLI) have been investigated. Comparative studies of performances of the two UPFC topologies are performed when both these UPFC structures are used to control the real and reactive power flows through a transmission line. Five-level structures of both the inverters have been considered. A simple and effective flying capacitor voltage balancing scheme has been used for the FCMLI and a chopper circuit based dc capacitor voltage equalization scheme has been considered for the DCMLI. The operation of the UPFCs are illustrated with representative results from the simulation studies performed using PSCAD/EMTDC.

ABSTRACT This paper presents a reduced-switch-count dual-bridge inverter approach for the mitigation of motor bearing currents and electromagnetic interference (EMI). The proposed inverter employs two four-switch inverters and is controlled to generate balanced excitation of dual-voltage-rating induction motors under pulsewidth modulated operation. The proposed approach eliminates the common-mode voltage and, thus, prevents the motors from premature bearing failures in addition to reducing the conducted EMI. Compared to the conventional four-switch inverters, the proposed inverter also eliminates the single-phase circulating current and voltage variations across the DC-link capacitors, which allows smaller capacitance to maintain the DC-bus voltage. Theoretical analysis as well as simulation and experimental results are presented to verify this concept

FACTS controllers are emerging as viable and economic solutions to the problems of large interconnected ac networks, which can endanger the system security. These devices are characterized by their fast response, absence of inertia, and minimum maintenance requirements. Thyristor controlled equipment like Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC), Static Var Compensator (SVC), Thyristor Controlled Phase angle Regulator (TCPR) etc. which involve passive elements result in devices of large sizes with substantial cost and significant labour for installation. An all solid-state device using GTOs leads to reduction in equipment size and has improved performance. The Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is a versatile controller which can be used to control the active and reactive power in the line independently. The concept of UPFC makes it possible to handle practically all power flow control and transmission line compensation problems, using solid-state controllers, which provide functional flexibility, generally not attainable by conventional thyristor controlled systems. In this paper, we present the development of a control scheme for the series injected voltage of the UPFC to damp the power oscillations and improve transient stability in a power system.
