Control of a dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) based on Space Vector PWM is described. The control algorithm is able to compensate for any type of voltage sag and uses a software phaselocked loop to track phase jumps during a fault. The control algorithm restores the depressed voltages to the same phase and magnitude as the nominal pre-sag voltages and then gradually tracks to the phase of the depressed voltages. Experimental results are shown to validate the control algorithm using a three-phase prototype with a power rating of 10 kVA.
