Abstract

In this paper, a 15 kVA soft open point converter is presented. The converter design and manufacturing have been presented in previous papers. The aim of this paper was to show the results of the devices in a full-scale laboratory environment, Gridlab, made of four distribution LV feeders, each rated 40 A. The tests demonstrated the good dynamics of the SOP control and its usefulness in performing a suitable PQ control. They also showed an improvement in the voltage profile and in the load capacity of the overall network. In the final part of the paper, the feedback earned during the development and the test of this first prototype are presented. This feedback will benefit the team for the design of a new improved 50 kVA version.
