This paper presents a new AC/AC serial voltage regulator using a capacitor as the serial element. It works as an active filter, which supplies only a percentage of the total load power to regulate the output voltage. It operates similarly to the serial voltage regulator which uses a low frequency transformer. However, in this topology, the low frequency transformer was changed by a capacitor reducing weight and price. Principle of the operation, theoretical analysis, simulation and experimental results are provided
