This paper presents the application of the Open Unified Power Quality Conditioner as a tool to improve the power quality in low voltage distribution grids. This system consists of a single or three-phase AC/DC power converter installed at customer’s premises and a main three-phase AC/DC power converter in the MV/LV substation. O-UPQC will be installed and tested in the city of Brescia (north of Italy) within Smart Domo Grid, a project co-funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development. A preliminary analysis of the power quality and the load distribution of the test area will be used as input for the design of the system.

Abstract

This paper presents the application of the Open Unified Power Quality Conditioner as a tool to improve the power quality in low voltage distribution grids. This system consists of a single or three-phase AC/DC power converter installed at customer’s premises and a main three-phase AC/DC power converter in the MV/LV substation. O-UPQC will be installed and tested in the city of Brescia (north of Italy) within Smart Domo Grid, a project co-funded by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development. A preliminary analysis of the power quality and the load distribution of the test area will be used as input for the design of the system.
