Abstract
This paper suggests a power filter/compensator (PFC) device to enhance the performance of distribution networks in low voltage or medium voltage levels. The operation of this device is based on the intermittent switching between passive filter and capacitive compensator. PFC is a combination of two series capacitors and shunt capacitor in series with double tuned filter arm or in series with high-pass filter. The control of this intermittent switching is achieved by two complementary pulse signals that are generated by a pulse-width modulation circuit. The modulating signal of pulse-width modulation is generated by PID controller that is driven by an error signal generated from a dual loop traditional controller.  A radial distribution network comprises hybrid loads, linear, nonlinear and motorized loads, is simulated using Matlab/Simulink to assess its performance with and without PFC. Results illustrate that PFC device has the superiority in enhancing the power factor, stabilizing voltage profile at the system buses, reducing the system losses and eliminating voltage and current distortions that are generated from the nonlinear load.
