Abstract

This paper addresses the timely issue of modeling and analysis of custom power controllers, a new generation of power electronics-based equipment aimed at enhancing the reliability and quality of power flows in lowvoltage distribution networks .The modeling approach is graphical in nature, as opposed to mathematical models embedded in code using a high-level computer language. The well-developed graphic facilities available in an industry standard power system package, namely PSCAD/EMTDC, are used to conduct all aspects of model implementation and to carry out extensive simulation studies. Graphics-based models suitable for electromagnetic tran-sient studies are presented for the following three custom power controllers: the distribution static compensator (D-STATCOM), the dynamic voltage restorer (DVR), and the solid-state transfer switch (SSTS). Comprehensive results are presented to assess the performance of each device as a potential custom power solution.
