Increased penetration of small scale renewable energy sources in the electrical distribution network, improvement of power quality has become more critical than where the current harmonics or disturbances and level of voltage can vary widely. For this reason, Custom Power Devices (CPDs) such as the Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) can be the most appropriate solution used for improving the dynamic performance of the distribution network, where accurate prior knowledge may not be available. Therefore, the main objectives are (i) placement (ii) integration (iii) capacity enhancement and (iv) real time control of the Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) to improve the power quality of a distributed generation (DG) network connected to the grid or microgrid. A new integration method of the UPQC has been developed: helps to the DGs to deliver quality of power in the case of islanding and help to reintegrate with the grid seamlessly post fault. It perform both control operation such as Detection of Islanding and reconnection techniques, hence, it is termed UPQC?G. The DG Inverter with storage supplies the active fundamental power only and the shunt part of the UPQC compensates the reactive and harmonic power of the load during both interconnected and islanding mode.
