This paper proposes a novel robust control scheme based on delay-dependent H∞for unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) in a microgrid under the influence of the delay and parameter uncertainties. A new UPQC model considering the effects of the delay and parameter uncertainties is established. Then, the H∞ controller is designed based on the cone complementarity linearization (CCL) algorithm. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed control method is demonstrated by numerical simulations.
