INTRODUCTION The generation of wind energy has been increasing rapidly and has become cost competitive with other means of generation. The power generated from wind turbine is always fluctuating due to environmental conditions. The wind power generated from wind turbine is expected to be a promising alternative energy source which can bring new challenges[1]. The kinetic energy of the wind is being absorbed by the rotor which constitutes blades which are mechanically coupled to the alternator. There are three types of alternator technologies to interface with wind turbine. 1. Conventional wound rotor or squirrel cage induction machines. These are supplemented by capacitors to supply reactive power needs. 2. Doubly fed wound rotor induction machines which employ power converters to control the rotor current to provide reactive power support and control. 3. Non-power frequency generation that requires an inverter or converter interface. The issue of power quality is of great importance to the wind energy conversions systems. The main power quality that arises when wind turbine connected to distribution system are sustained 108 International Journal of Electrical Engineering and Technology (IJEET), ISSN 0976 – 6545(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6553(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME interruptions, voltage regulation, harmonics and voltage sags. The power quality issues that arise when wind turbine is connected to distribution system is minimized by fuzzy controlled statcom. The fuzzy controlled statcom works with a set of fuzzy rules which are implemented in the matlab program. The way to represent inexact data and knowledge, closer to humanlike thinking, is to use fuzzy rules instead of exact rules when representing knowledge. Fuzzy systems are rule-based expert systems based on fuzzy rules and fuzzy inference. Fuzzy rules represent in a straightforward way "commonsense" knowledge and skills, or knowledge that is vague, or contradictory. This knowledge might have come from many different sources. Commonsense knowledge may have been acquired from long-term experience, from the experience of many people, over many years. The FUZZY-STATCOM control scheme for Distribution line connected wind energy generation for power quality improvement has following objectives. • Sustained interruptions are minimized in the distribution system. • Reactive power support only from F-STATCOM to wind Generator and Load. • Minimization of Harmonics at source and load sides i.e reduction in THD values. II. FUZZY-STATIC COMPENSATOR (STATCOM) A. Principle of STATCOM A STATCOM is a voltage source converter (VSC), with the voltage source behind a reactor. The voltage source is created from a DC capacitor and therefore a STATCOM has very little active power storage. However, its active power capacity can be increased if a suitable energy storage device is connected across the DC capacitor. The reactive power at the terminals of the STATCOM depends on the amplitude of the voltage source. For example, if the terminal voltage of the VSC is higher than the AC voltage at the point of connection, the STATCOM generates reactive current; on the other hand, when the amplitude of the voltage source is lower than the AC voltage, it absorbs reactive power. The time respone of a STATCOM is shorter than that of an SVC, mainly due to the fast switching times provided by the IGBTs of the voltage source converter[3]. The STATCOM also provides better reactive power support at low AC voltages than an SVC, since the reactive power from a STATCOM decreases linearly with the AC voltage. Reactive power can be altered by modifying the voltage amplitude of the VSC. For this purpose, a transformer with a turns-ratio of 1:1 or a reactor is assumed. In addition, constant distribution voltage is assumed. STATCOMs have the ability to address transient events at a faster rate and with better performance at lower voltages than a Static Voltage Compensator (SVC). The maximum compensation current in a STATCOM is independent of the system voltage. A STATCOM provides dynamic voltage control and power oscillation damping, and improves the system’s transient stability. By controlling the phase angle, the flow of current between the converter and the ac system are controlled[5].

Fuzzy logic controller In a fuzzy logic controller (FLC), the dynamic behaviour of a fuzzy system is characterised by a set of linguistic description rules based on expert knowledge. The expert knowledge is usually of the form IF (a set of conditions are satisfied) THEN (a set of consequences can be inferred). Since the antecedents and the consequents of these IF-THEN rules are associated with fuzzy concepts (Linguistic terms), there are often called fuzzy conditional statements. A fuzzy control rule is a fuzzy conditional statement in which the antecedent is a condition in its application domain and the consequent is a control action for the system under control. Basically, fuzzy control rules provide a convenient way for expressing control policy and domain knowledge. Furthermore several linguistic variables might be involved in the antecedents and the conclusion of these rules. When this is the case the system will be referred as multiple input multiple output fuzzy systems. Figure 2: Fuzzy logic controller III. DISTRIBUTION CO-ORDINATION RULE The Distribution quality characteristics and limits are given for references that the customer and the utility may expect. A. Voltage Rise (u): The voltage rise at the point of common coupling can be approximated as a function of maximum apparent power Smax of the turbine, the grid impedances R and X at the point of common coupling and the phase angle ∅ given in Eq.1 u = Smax(Rcos φ– Xsinφ )/U2 (1) Where u = Voltage Rise Smax = Maximum Apparent power U = Nominal Voltage of the grid Φ = Phase difference The limiting voltage rise value is < 2%. B. Voltage Dips (d): The voltage dips is due to startup of wind turbine and it causes a sudden reduction of voltage. It is the relative % voltage change due to switching operation of wind turbine. The decrease of nominal voltage change is given in Eq. 2. 110 International Journal of Electrical Engineering and Technology (IJEET), ISSN 0976 – 6545(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6553(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME d=KuSn/Sk (2) Where, d is relative voltage change. Sn is rated apparent power. Sk is short circuit apparent power. Ku is sudden voltage reduction factor. The acceptance voltage dips limiting value is ≤ 3%. C. Flicker: The long term flicker is given by Plt = C ( k) Sn/Sk (3) Where, Plt = long term flicker. C ( k) =flicker coefficient calculated from Rayleigh distribution of the wind speed . The Limiting Value for flicker coefficient is about ≤ 0.4. D. Harmonics: The harmonic distortion is assessed for variable speed turbine with an electronic power converter at the point of common connection. The total harmonic voltage distortion of voltage is given as in Eq. 4 V (4) Where, Vn is the nth harmonic voltage. V1 is the fundamental frequency(50) Hz. The THD limit for 132 KV is 3%. THD of current ITHD is given as in Eq. 5 (5) Where, In is the nth harmonic current. I1 is the fundamental frequency (50) Hz. The THD of current and limit for 132 KV is <2.5%. IV. WIND ENERGY GENERATING SYSTEM A. Wind Turbine Generating System Wind generations are based on constant speed topologies with pitch control turbine. The induction generator is used in the proposed scheme because of its simplicity, it does not require a separate field circuit, it can accept constant and variable loads, and has natural protection against short circuit. The available power of wind energy system is presented as below. The kinetic energy in air of mass “m” moving with speed V is given by the following in SI units: Kinetic Energy = 1/2. m . V2 joules. The power in moving air is the flow rate of kinetic energy per second wind Power = ½.

TOPOLOGY FOR POWER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT The F-STATCOM based current control voltage source inverter injects the current into the grid in such a way that the source current are harmonic free and their phase-angle with respect to source voltage has a desired value. The injected current will cancel out the reactive part and harmonic part of the load and induction generator current, thus it improves the power factor and the power quality. To accomplish these goals, the grid voltages are sensed and are synchronized in generating the current command for the inverter. The proposed distribution connected system in Fig. 4 consists of wind energy generation system and battery energy storage system with F-STATCOM. 112 International Journal of Electrical Engineering and Technology (IJEET), ISSN 0976 – 6545(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6553(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME Figure 4: Line Diagram for Proposed system (with FUZZY STATCOM) VI.

CONCLUSION The paper presents the FUZZY STATCOM-based control scheme for power quality improvement in Distribution line connected wind generating system and with non linear load. The power quality issues and its consequences on the consumer and electric utility are presented. The operation of the control system developed for the FUZZY STATCOM in MATLAB/SIMULINK for maintaining the power quality is simulated. It has a capability to cancel out the harmonic parts of the load current. It maintains the source voltage and current in-phase and support the reactive power demand for the wind generator and load at PCC in the Distribution system, thus it gives an opportunity to enhance the utilization factor of Distribution line. The integrated wind generation and STATCOM with FUZZY Controller have shown the outstanding performance. Thus the proposed scheme in the Distribution connected system fulfills the power quality norms as per the IEC standard 61400-21[8]. 116 International Journal of Electrical Engineering and Technology (IJEET), ISSN 0976 – 6545(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6553(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME REFERENCES [1] K.
