Electrical distribution systems face increased non-linear loads due to using power electronics for the converters. Due to these non-linear loads, the system exhibits PQ problems in the distributed feeders. To enhance PQ problems in the dual feeder, fractional order fuzzy proportional integral derivative controller (FOFPID) is introduced with interline unified power quality (IUPQC) conditioner. IUPQC conditioner includes a distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM), dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) and interleaved cuk converter (ICC). DSTATCOM and DVR are used for compensating the voltages and current in the dual feeders (feeder-1 and feeder-2). Also, ICC monitors the switching between the DSTATCOM and DVR compensators by providing proper power flow. Moreover, the FOFPID controller regulates an input supply from both feeders. The simulation is performed through MATLAB/Simulink platform, demonstrating the robustness of a proposed FOFPID with an IUPQC controller. The performance of a proposed controller is analyzed through two cases for both feeders. Furthermore, the total harmonic distortions (THD) are calculated for the feeder parameters. The proposed FOFPID with IUPQC controller also maintains stability in a dual feeder. Therefore, the entire response shows the functionality and feasibility of a proposed controller.
