Silicon Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Source Implementation in D-STATCOM Power Circuit for Power Quality Enhancement
Silicon Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) as a non-conventional energy source is implemented for D-STATCOM power circuit. A detailed description of the SOFC modelling approach is given in this paper. This methodology is used in D-STATCOM power circuit for an energy source. A SOFC Based D-STATCOM is implemented to mitigate various symmetrical as well as unsymmetrical fault conditions. Advantages and disadvantages for implementation of SOFC are also discussed.
