A control scheme for storageless dvr basedon characterization of voltage sags
Poonam Deshmukh, Anant K. Shukla, and Pawan C. Tapre

Voltage sag remains a serious power-quality (PQ) problem by being the most common and causing more economic losses. The dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) is a definitive solution to address the voltage-related PQ problems. Conventional topologies operate with a dc link, which makes them bulkier and costlier; it also imposes limits on the compensation capability of the DVR. Topologies with the same functionality, operating without the dc link by utilizing a direct ac–ac converter, are preferable...
