In this paper a new topology for Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) with high frequency link is proposed. This topology is able to compensate different types of voltage disturbances such as voltage sag, voltage swell and voltage harmonics. According to the obtained equations, this topology operates as a controllable current source to charge the series capacitor. Due to using High Frequency Transformer (HFT), the volume and the weight of the proposed DVR is decreased in comparison with conventional DVRs. This topology contains two ac/ac converters which are using in the input and output of the device. The absence of dc link capacitors and storage elements is the other advantage of using the proposed structure. In order to verify the claimed features, the proposed topology has been simulated by PSCAD/EMTDC software and examined under several disturbance conditions. In addition, an experimental prototype has been designed and tested. The results of the simulation and experimental cases are presented.
