Abstract: Article describes about the improvisation of power quality using Distribution static compensator and Unified power quality conditioner in microgrid. The control method used for the elimination of problems, is predictive control technique. Controller is added in the Microgrid system with three renewable sources. Filters are also added to the system to mitigate the harmonics. The two custom power devices are modeled with model predictive controller [MPC] and made to control separately the existing Microgrid system. The results are taken and compared in both Microgrid modes of operation. The output is documented using MATLAB/Simulink software. Comparison is shown differently and harmonics values are reduced.
