dc.description.abstract This project presents a scheme to balance the active power consumed by unbalanced loads in three-phase four wire system. Power systems are generally unbalanced due to asymmetry of the load applied and different time operations by consumers. Unbalanced operating conditions cause lot of problems to the power system. There are schemes for power balancing in three phase three wire systems, but this project illustrates power balancing in three-phase four wire systems. It can be shown that a power electronic converter based on the generalized instantaneous power theory, can redistribute active power among phases. The generalized instantaneous power theory can be used in both three-wire and four-wire three-phase systems. Power electronic circuit takes power from the phase that delivers low power and feeds to the phase that delivers high power. Therefore load as viewed by the power source becomes balanced without negative and zero sequence components although unbalanced power is still supplied to the load. The load current and the voltage are measured continuously and the instantaneous power is calculated. Reference current wave for the hysteresis current controller is calculated using the-control strategy. Power electronic inverter is controlled by hysteresis current controller and it redistributes the active power in the phases. There are no external power sources used and the inverter is driven by a capacitor. Therefore power source supplies balanced power to an unbalanced source. The simulation studies of the project is done by MatLab software and results show that the source current becomes balanced after connecting to the power electronic converter The rating of the power electronic converter is decided on the basis of the phase unbalance rather than the rated load power.
