Mitigation of Voltage Fluctuations/Voltage Flicker and Power Quality Improvement in Power Systems Using Distributed Satcom


Abubakar Sufyanu

This paper deals with power quality and more specifically, voltage flicker in power systems. Voltage flicker is one of the disturbances in power systems. This flicker mainly occurs due to nonlinear loads. The magnitude of the voltage flicker solely depends on the type of electrical load that is producing the disturbance. Voltage flicker can also occur due to voltage sag and/or voltage swell in the system. This voltage sag can generate inrush current and this current passes into the sensitive loads in the distribution system.
