Multi-function filter compensation devices in composite power supply systems in mining industry

It is of the current concern to improve electric energy quality in composite power supply systems in the mineral mining industry using interlocked and self-contained sources of power in parallel operation. The main causes of degradation of electric power in the sources, in distributing mains and at consumers are revealed. The adverse consequences of low quality power supply are described. The expediency of using filter compensation devices with multifunction active converters to improve the quality of electric power is demonstrated. The current achievements in science and engineering in structural and parametric synthesis of filter compensation devices with active converters are reviewed. Their major advantages over the conventional gears used in the power supply systems in the conditions of variation in the power supply and consumption parameters are listed. The study substantiates the currentness of theoretical and practical guidance for electrical equipment with a number of active converters as a case-study of universal power quality compensators. The structure of universal power quality compensators with a few active converters and their connection in the compensate power supply systems in the mineral mining sector is described. The mathematical models of universal compensators depending on their structure and location are built.

Keywords: filter compensation devices, active filter compensation devices, active semiconductor converters, universal compensators, reactive power, higher harmonics, harmonic distortions, power quality, nonlinear load, electromagnetic compatibility.
