    Abstract

    Centre node unified power flow controller can fulfil various power flow control objectives, such as the needs of reactive shunt and series compensation, phase shifting and ensure higher degree of control freedom. However, as they are expensive, they are not widely used. The potential of a low-cost solution that utilises the capabilities of plug in electric vehicle (PEV) in vehicle-to-grid mode of operation for the design of a centre node virtual unified power flow controller (CVUPFC) using PEV charging stations is explained. Simulations are performed to establish that the proposed CVUPFC improves the power quality utilising PEV charging stations as DC bus for the converters with higher degree of freedom to control.
