Abstract: This paper mainly focuses on studying the effectiveness of the Electric Spring(ES) in regulating the source power when source voltage fed by unstable power source and balancing the load voltage during peak shaving. Due to renewable energy source which is intermittent in nature, the power generated at critical load will not meet the load demand. To meet the load demand Electric spring provides peak shaving of load voltage by balancing the source power. Thus, ES provides solution to the Power instability problem caused by such micro grids. In this project work, electric spring is implemented in conjunction with loads and demonstrates properties of electric spring.
Keywords: Energy supported electric spring, Reactive Power Compensator, Smart load, and peak shaving.
