Abstract-In little more than ten years, electricity power quality device that can compensate almost all power quality
has grown from obscurity to a major issue. Power quality is problems such as voltage harmonics, voltage unbalance,

consideration by utilities in order to meet the demands of their current unbalance, reactive current, etc. The Unified Power

DUE to the extensive use of power electronic based

common coupling (PCC) could be highly distorted [1]-[3].
The switching ON/OFF of high rated load connected to
PCC may result into voltage sags or swells on the PCC.
There are several sensitive loads, such as computer or
microprocessor based AC/DC drive controller, with good
voltage profile requirement; can function improperly or
sometime can lose valuable data or in certain cases get
damaged due to these voltage sag and swell conditions.
One of the effective approaches is to use a unified power
quality conditioner (UPQC) at PCC to protect the sensitive
loads. A UPQC is a combination of shunt and series APFs, Figure.1 Block Diagram of UPQC

As our test system is the IEEE 14 BUS system which has 22

lines and 14 buses. Bus 1 is Slack Bus and Buses 2,3,6,8 are
the generator buses. All the buses except bus 1 contains
loads also. So it is important to decide that which bus is the
most critical bus.
For deciding the location of UPQC a fault based technique
is suggested. The bus which is always affected by the
faults, no matter where the fault is taking place in the
Figure.5 IEEE 14 Bus System system, is called as most critical bus and the load connected
to that bus is called as the most critical load.
A. SYSTEM VARIFICATION FROM LOAD The location of UPQC is decided in two steps :

But we chose bus 9 as the most critical bus as
