DVR, BWO technique, FOPID controller


The efficiency with which electrical equipment use electricity is essential for several reasons. First, superior power quality (PQ) improves efficiency and facilitates peak performance in electronic equipment. This article's goal is to make the advantages of installing a Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) to enhance PQ for energy users clearer. To improve DVR dependability and user friendliness, the suggested technique uses a hysteresis voltage control system that works with variable switching frequency. Simulation findings show that voltage compensation is successful under disturbances when a black widow optimization (BWO) based Factional order proportional derivative (FOPID) controller is used. This paper proposed is to improve PQ using a BWO- FOPID controller and compare the outcomes to those achieved from a previously developed PI controller in a distribution power system using MATLAB.
