Abstract: Renewable energy sources are used to accommodate the ongoing increasing power demand. So, the integration of PV system controlled by the revised p-q concept which is revealed from instantaneous active reactive power concept and a suitable choice to meet the energy demand. Enormous utilization of power electronic converters deviates the quality of power. Series voltage compensation and shunt current compensation is done by the p-q theory. Revised p-q conceptstates the single instantaneous active power and the imaginary powers for active and reactive power compensation. This paper presents the revised p-q concept to generate the reference signals for integrated unified power quality conditioner (PV-UPQC-S). This proposed method enables the process of PV-UPQC-S under unbalanced voltage circumstances at the point of common coupling (PCC). This system incorporates the series voltage source converter (VSC) to control the unbalanced voltage by sharing the part of the reactive power of the load, which in turn reduces the rating of the shunt VSC. The integration of the PV system at the DC bus of UPQC serves the purpose of load sharing as well as power quality improvement to maintain the healthy grid condition. This concept is approved by simulating the proposed model in MATLAB/Simulink. The proposed model comprises of both linear and non-linear loads. The experimental results validates the perfect dynamical response of the given model.
