Abstract
—This paper presents the control of distribution staticsynchronous compensator (DSTATCOM) for reactive power, har-monics and unbalanced load current compensation of a dieselgenerator set for an isolated system. The control of DSTATCOMis achieved using least mean square-based adaptive linear ele-ment (Adaline). An Adaline is used to extract balanced positive-sequence real fundamental frequency component of the loadcurrent and a proportional–integral (PI) controller is used tomaintain a constant voltage at the dc-bus of a voltage-sourceconverter (VSC) working as a DSTATCOM. Switching of VSCis achieved by controlling source currents to follow referencecurrents using hysteresis-based PWM control. This scheme issimulated under MATLAB environment using Simulink andPSB block-set toolboxes for feeding linear and nonlinear loads.The modeling is performed for a three-phase, three-wire star-connected synchronousgeneratorcoupledtoadieselengine,alongwith the three-leg VSC working as a DSTATCOM. Results arepresented to verify the effectiveness of the control of DSTATCOMfor the load compensation and an optimal operation of the DG set.

NSTALLATION OF the diesel engine-based electricity gen-eration unit (DG set) is a widely used practice to feed thepower to some crucial equipment in remote areas [1], [2].DG sets used for these purposes are loaded with unbalanced,reactive and nonlinear loads such as power supplies in sometelecommunication equipment and medical equipment. Thesource impedance of the DG set is quite high, and the un-balanced and distorted currents lead to the unbalanced anddistorted three-phase voltages at point of common coupling(PCC). Harmonics and unbalanced currents ﬂowing throughthe generator result into torque ripples at the generator shaft.All of these factors lead to the increased fuel consumption andreduced life of the DG sets. These forces the DG sets to beoperated with derating, which results into an increased costof the system. Nowadays, small generator units are available

with full conversion (inverter-converter) units to meet stringentpower quality norms [3]. Instead of using these, a DSTATCOM[2] can be used with a three-phase DG set to feed unbalancedloads without derating the DG set and to have the same costinvolved. For example, a 24-kW lagging power factor load of 0.8 pf will consume 18 kVAR which is 60% of total kVArating of a 30 kVA generator. The market price of an inverteris

500 per kVA rating. Moreover, theDSATCOM can provide compensation for harmonics whichfacilitates to load the DG set up to its full kVA rating.The performance of DSTATCOM is very much dependenton the method of deriving reference compensating signals.Instantaneous reactive power theory, modiﬁed p-q theory, syn-chronous reference frame theory, instantaneous

theory,and method for estimation of reference currents by maintainingthe voltage of dc link are generally reported in the literature foranestimationofreferencecurrentsfortheDSTATCOMthroughthe extraction of positive-sequence real fundamental currentcomponent from the load current [4]–[7]. These techniques arebased on complex calculations and generally incorporate a setof low-pass ﬁlter which results in a delay in the computation of referencecurrentsandthereforeleadstoslowdynamicresponseof the DSTATCOM. In this paper, a fast and simple neuralnetwork-based control scheme is used to estimate referencesource currents for the control of the DSTATCOM.This paper presents a DSTATCOM for the load compensa-tion of a diesel generator set to enhance its performance. Thecontrol of DSTATCOM with capabilities of reactive power,harmonics and unbalanced load compensation is achieved byLeast Mean Square (LMS) algorithm [8], [9] based adap-tive linear element (Adaline). The Adaline is used to extractpositive-sequence fundamental frequency real component of the load current. The dc-bus voltage of voltage source converter(VSC) is supported by a proportional–integral (PI) controllerwhich computes current component to compensate losses inDSTATCOM. The extraction of reference currents using Ada-line involves an estimation of weights. These weights are mea-sure of peak of fundamental frequency real current componentof the load current. The life of a DG set is enhanced in theabsence of unbalanced and harmonic currents. The modeling of the DG set is performed using a synchronous generator, a speedgovernor, and the excitation control system. This proposed sys-tem is simulated under MATLAB environment using Simulink and PSB Block-set toolboxes. The results for a 30-kVA DGset with the linear load at 0.8 lagging pf and a nonlinear loadwith different load dynamics and unbalance load conditions are

The operation of this system requires a DG set to supply realpower needed to the load and some losses (switching losses of devices used in VSC, losses in the reactor, and dielectric losses

One is real fundamental frequency componentof the load current, which is being extracted using Adalineand another component, which corresponds to the losses inthe DSTATCOM, are estimated using a PI controller over dcvoltage of DSTATCOM. Fig. 2(a) shows the control schemefor the implementation of reactive, unbalanced and harmoniccurrents compensation. The output of the PI controller is addedto the weight calculated by the Adaline to maintain the dc-busvoltage of the DSTATCOM.
A. Extraction of Real Positive-Sequence FundamentalFrequency Current from Load Current
The basic theory of the proposed decomposer is based onLMS algorithm [9] and its training through Adaline, whichtracks a unit voltage vector templates to maintain minimumerror. The basic concept of theory used here can be under-stood by considering the analysis in single-phase systemwhich is given. For an ac system, the supply voltage may beexpressed as

(2)The control algorithm is based on the extraction of the cur-rent component in phase with unit voltage template. To estimatethe fundamental frequency positive-sequence real componentof load current, the unit voltage template should be in phasewith the system voltage and should have unit amplitude. Theunit voltage template

Weights are averaged not only for averaging atfundamental frequency but to cancel out sinusoidal oscillatingcomponents in weights present due to harmonics in the sourcecurrent. The averaging of weights in different phases is shownin Fig. 2(a). Thus Adaline is trained at fundamental frequencyof a particular sequence in-phase with voltage. Fig. 2(a) and(b) show the detailed scheme implemented for control of DSTATCOM.
