Influence of the electrical circuit configurations of a DVR coupling transformer with a magnetic bypass

Abstract : Purpose For the proposed coupling transformer, a magnetic bypass based on the virtual air gap principle is realized by inserting auxiliary windings in a return leg added to a standard transformer. With such a setup, it is able to act as a voltage regulator as well as protect the power electronics of the dynamic voltage restorer from electrical grid fault currents. This paper focuses on the electrical design part of the coupling transformer. It aims to explain how the behavior of the auxiliary windings electrical circuit of the magnetic bypass impacts the performances of the device. Design/methodology/approach The influence of the electrical auxiliary windings circuit configurations on the operation of the coupling transformer is studied by finite element analyses with nonlinear and isotropic magnetic materials. Findings A configuration for the realization of the electrical circuit of the auxiliary windings is determined according to the finite element simulation results to achieve the design of the coupling transformer whose magnetic core was previously designed. Originality/value By studying the operation of a special coupling transformer with nonlinear saturation phenomenon by finite element analyses, a to-do list of the electrical circuit parameters is described to design this device well.
