The power quality (PQ) requirement is one of the most important issues for power companies and their customers. The power quality disturbances are voltage sag, swell, notch, spike and transients etc. The voltage sag and swell is very severe problem for an industrial customer which needs urgent attention for its compensation. There are various methods for the compensation of voltage sag and swell. One of the most popular methods of sag and swell compensation is Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR), which is used in both low voltage and medium voltage applications. In this paper, the comprehensive reviews of various articles, the advantages and disadvantages of each possible configuration and control techniques pertaining to DVR are presented. The compensation strategies and controllers have been presented in literature, aiming at fast response, accurate compensation and low costs. This review will help the researchers to select the optimum control strategy and power circuit configuration for DVR applications. This will also very helpful in finalizing the method of analysis and recommendations relating to the power quality problems.
