This paper presents a new control method to compensate the power quality problems through a three-phase unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) under non-ideal mains voltage and unbalanced load conditions. The performance of proposed control system was analyzed using simulations with Matlab/Simulink program, and experimental results with the hardware prototype. The proposed UPQC system can improve the power quality at the point of common coupling (PCC) on power distribution system under non-ideal mains voltage and unbalanced load conditions.
