This paper will discuss the design and implementation of an integrated circuit controller for the development of a three phase reactive power compensator. An integrated circuit approach is desired as it provides for a more streamlined and economically advantageous design to reactive power compensation. Various methods are available to compensate reactive power levels utilizing different sources of reactive power, however this controller will be constructed around an insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) switched capacitor bank designed for reactive power compensation. The primary components considered in the proposed controller design will consist of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for signal capture and a robust microcontroller unit (MCU) for data manipulation and logic control.
