UPQC, UPFC, Series-connected, Shunt- connected.


In a power transmitting network, a Unified Power Quality Conditioner is used to operate both shunt— connected and series-connected compensation simultaneously. Destabilize, disturbance, and sometimes even dc elements can all be found in a power distribution network. As a result, a UPQC (Unified Power Quality Conditioner) outperforms a Unified Power Flow Conditioner (UPFC) in many of these areas to offer shunt-connected or series-connected compensation. The main objective of this paper is to provide the overview, different designs given by many researchers to improve the performance of the UPQC.
