Abstract—The aim of the paper is to evaluate the technical aspect feasibility related to the use, in a (DVR) dynamic voltage restorer (DVR), of fuel cells instead of traditional DC storage systems. The proposed system, named DVR FCB (Fuel Cell Based) presents a modular and versatile system configuration; it is possible to integrate it with traditional DVR. Moreover the system feature can be modified in terms of power, reliability and voltage sag compensation. A detail analysis has been carried out on a passive stand–by DVR integrated with a FCB; experimental result can be easily extended to the other possible system architectures.
Index Terms—DC Energy Storage, Dynamic Voltage Restorer, Voltage Sag, Silicon Oxide Fuel Cell.
