Pegah Shafaghi; Mehdi Mahdavian

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 25 March 2022

  Power electronic converters such as dynamic voltage restorer (DVR), distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM), and unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) can zero voltage regulation, eliminate harmonics, reactive power compensation and unbalancing on both the source and load side of the system. The ...  Read More

Optimal Capacitor Placement to Improve the Performance of the Electrical Power Distribution System Using Genetic Algorithm

Mohammad Hossein Kafi; Mehdi Mahdavian; Ali Asghar Amini; Ghazanfar Shahgholian; Majid Dehghani

Volume 11, Issue 03 , September 2022, , Pages 111-117

  The purpose using capacitors in distribution networks is to reduce the total losses of the network. Capacitors help regulate the power factor and voltage in the electrical distribution system, and can be controlled remotely, in and out of the system. Capacitor placement depends on the objective function, ...  Read More

Improvement Damping Power System Oscillations by Using Static Synchronous Series Compensator

Majid Dehghani; Mehdi Mahdavian; Ali Asghar Amini

Volume 10, Issue 04 , November 2021, , Pages 197-202

  From a steady state point of view, FACTS devices operate by increasing or decreasing voltage, supplying or absorbing reactive power, and controlling the impedance of a series of transmission lines or phase angles. There are two types of power fluctuation damping controllers in power systems: power system ...  Read More

Design of a New IPFC-Based Damping Neurocontrol for Enhancing Stability of a Power System Using Particle Swarm Optimization

Ghazanfar Shahgholian; Mehdi Mahdavian; Michael Noorani Kalteh; Mohammadreza Janghorbani

Volume 03, Issue 02 , April 2014, , Pages 73-78

  The interline power flow controller (IPFC) is a concept of the FACTS controller for series compensation which can inject a voltage with controllable magnitude and phase angle among multi lines. This paper proposes a novel IPFC-Based Damping Neuro-control scheme using PSO for damping oscil‌la‌t‌i‌o‌ns ...  Read More
