Control of DSTATCOM by SRF Theory

Fig. 9 shows the extraction of real fundamental current component of load current by SRF theory and the performance of the DSTATCOM is controlled by SRF theory is presented in Fig. 10. The simulation is carried out for similar load changes and unbalanced conditions as of previous case. The effect of delay due to LPF used for filtering signals in d-q frame can be seen in extracted reference currents waveform in Fig. 9. The generation of voltage templates (sine and cosine) plays an important role in calculation of reference source currents. These templates are generated using PLL and therefore the tuning of PLL is crucial.

The operation of PLL slows and it also imposes some amount of delay in computation.

Control of DSTATCOM by Adaline based Algorithm

Extraction of reference currents by Adaline based current DSTATCOM is shown in Fig. 12. It can be observed that the DSTATCOM controlled by the Adaline is able to meet the load changes within one cycle of the sine wave. The advantage of the Adaline based extractor is that it requires less computation efforts and therefore the implementation of this technique is much simpler. Moreover, the inherent linearity of Adaline makes it as a fast technique. The speed of convergence can be varied by varying the value of n (convergence-coefficient).

The mathematical derivation of the p-q and SRF theory has been employed to demonstrate the behavior of DSTATCOM.

An Adaline based control technique has resulted in considerable improved performance of DSTATCOM. The Adaline based technique utilizes LMS algorithm to calculate the weights, and all the calculations are performed online therefore the algorithm is able to extract reference current components in case of varying load condition which otherwise is not possible with other neural network based current extraction techniques. MATLAB based results have verified the effectiveness of these control algorithms.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
