Abstract In the present year we face the power system issues, one of the major power system problem is associated to power quality. Power quality issue is an occurred due to a current, variable voltage or variable frequency so the failure occurred in at load side voltage. One of the sever issue related to power quality is power sag. To resolve this problem, the Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is used, which is one of the most methodical and potent modern custom power device exploit in power distribution networks to solve power quality issue.
The advantages of DVR is its smaller in size, lower in cost, and its fast-in dynamic response to the external disturbance. In this research paper modeling, analysis, simulation and comparative study between 3 different control methods which are -1) SRF theory it contain Parks transformation controlled Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR), 2) sliding mode control (SMC) – it is the combination of SRF theory & SMC, & 3) Terminal sliding mode control it is the combination of robust and SMC, finite time convergence for fast response, high accuracy and strong robustness by using a MATLAB (2018) Simulink model.
Keywords: Power Sag, DVR (Dynamic voltage restorer), SRFT (synchronous reference frame theory), SMC (Sliding mode control) TSMC (Terminal Sliding mode controller), voltage sag, MATLAB simulation.
In the power system, the power quality issues analogous to voltage sag, voltage swell, harmonics. voltage sag is the most extreme severe disturbance in the distribution network. To reduce voltage sag custom power devices are used. . DVR is one of the modern custom devices, which is the most proficient and compelling.
DVR is solid-state device which is associated in series, the device inject voltage into the distribution network system to control the load-side voltage. DVR is usually introduced in a distribution network system between the supply and the critical load feeder at the point of common coupling (PCC). Other than voltage sags and voltage swells compensation, DVR also has different attribute like line voltage harmonic settlement, a decrease of transients in voltage and fault current limitations.
The Dynamic Voltage Regulator (SAPF/ DVR) contain of a Voltage-Source Inverter (VSI) with a depot element on the DC side. The capacity of the DVR to eliminate low-frequency events is exclusively a result of the control algorithms used to get components of a reference voltage.
A DVR is a conventional power device which acts as a harmonic isolator to obstruct the harmonics in the source voltage transpire at the load as well as balancing the voltages and furnish voltage regulation.

Simulink model for system with DVR without sliding mode control
Terminal Sliding Mode Control-
TSM is non-linear robust control system approach. In Conventional sliding mode controller convergence time is infinite. In the TSM controller, a nonlinear term of system is introduced in the sliding surface design therefore multiple is formulated as an attractor.
TSMC (Terminal Sliding Mode Control) advanced structure of the CSMC (Conventional SMC) to gain finite time convergence to the steady state condition. TSMC give rise to a robust control with tuneable finite time convergence for strong robustness, fast response and high accuracy. Robust control has high gain feedback so effect of any disturbance parameter on a system is negligible. In the robust control the system is stable after the disturbance occurred.  The difference resides in the many where the system trajectories slide, by changing the linear hyper planes of the CSMC (Conventional Sliding Mode Control) to nonlinear switching surfaces in TSMC (Terminal Sliding Mode Control). With these new changes, TSMC maintain all the benefits of the CSMC (Conventional Sliding Mode Control)
but achieves finite time convergence to the origin. Consider a canonical form of continuous nonlinear system

The Simulink model for system with DVR is shown in the following figure 8. DVR part in the Simulink model consist of control technique block- for controlling inverter operation i.e. to control voltage, IGBT based Inverter- for injecting voltage in the system , LC filter- for removing harmonics generated in the system and 1:1 isolation transformer- for providing isolation. The control technique is based on the SRF theory i.e. Synchronous Reference Theory… The control technique is based on Parks transformationi.ie. Covert abc parameter to dq parameter for easier control and inverse Parks transformation to convert dq to abc parameter. We can independently control active (d) and reactive (q) components of current and voltage. Is shown in the figure 5

In this model also a three phase fault is created from (0.4 sec) to (0.5 sec) .and analysis the results i.e. The load voltage, DVRs injected voltage and restored supply voltage are shown in below figure, the figure numbers are fig.- 6 (a) fig.- 6 (b) and fig.- 6 (c) respectively.

Fig: 6 (c): Restored supply voltage
Figure 6(a) to figure 6(c) shows that during fault condition the voltage will restore by injecting opposite phase voltage in the system. The supply voltage is restored to some extent than that of the uncompensated system but the sag isn't restored totally likewise the voltage harmonics are presents along with transients present in
supply voltage which shows that functioning of DVR is not satisfactory or the results of SRF theory is not good.

Fig: 8: THD of Restored Supply Voltage
From figure (7) it shows the load voltage THD is 36.37% during sag period and from figure (8) shows the THD of restored supply voltage without SMC DVR it is reduced to 5.13%
Simulink model for system with Sliding mode- controlled DVR
To reduce the voltage THD the system is simulated utilizing a SMC algorithm. The supply voltage is restored with SMC DVR. Proposed control Strategy is explained earlier and the same is applied in the Simulink model. The proposed control technique is- first convert Supply current, injected current and injected voltage are first converted abc to dq domain using Parks Transformation second step all converted parameter given to sliding mode equations and then the output from sliding mode equation which is in dq domain so again it converted into abc domain using inverse Parks transformation. By Using PWM technique the switching signals are provided to the Inverter.
Source Voltage (Vims) = 400V, Fundamental frequency = 50 Hz, Three phase Fault Resistance = 1, source impedance (X/R) ratio = 7, Passive filter inductance = 1.35mH, Passive filter capacitance= 60F, Series filter inductance= 1.35mH, Series filter capacitance

Simulink model for system with DVR Terminal Sliding Mode Control
Terminal Sliding Mode Control-(TSMC) is advanced structure of the CSMC i.e. Conventional Sliding Mode Control to achieve finite time convergence to the steady state condition. Terminal sliding model control is combination of two controller, i.e. robust control and conventional sliding mode control. Robust control system is used to remove uncertainty in the system or remove disturbances present in system. System will be stable after clearing fault by controller due to its robust nature. So we get better results by using TSMC as compare to SMC and SRFT.

By Using PWM technique the switching signals are provided to the Inverter.

The DVR is cost- effective solution to mitigate voltage disturbances. A sliding mode-controlled DVR is used for to remove power quality problems. The TSMC control technique is used to remove power quality problem with robust nature because TSMC is combination of two controller, i.e. robust control (RC) and sliding mode control (SMC).
