Abstract:
    UPQC(Unified Power Quality Conditioner) is one stop solution for all issues related to power quality. It integrates Series & Shunt Active Power Filter to compensate harmonics, imbalance and powerflow.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Nowadays almost all applications use power converters, which pollute power systems by injecting harmonics. Conventional solutions require PFC to be integrated with devices. Our solution can cater a house/industrial plant with only one unit. In short, we can reduce size & cost of almost every device.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   As per analysis by TMR, harmonic filtration devices will have expected market value of 1.2 billion USD by 2024. While, Asia Pacific is the largest consumer section.
How will the solution works
    Our product uses sophisticated mathematical transformations to calculate amount of harmonic, imbalance and unnecessary reactive power flowing in power system. After which we inject voltage and current corresponding to same amount of undesired components but with 180 degree out of phase, causing it to cancel out undesired power components from system.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors include ABB and Schneider in global market. But they have yet to penetrate local market. We are not big but we are definitely the first in our region. Our modular design allows us to target both single & 3 phase, and provides better serviceability.
