Adaptive Control Strategy of Active Power Filter for Harmonic Compensation of Non Linear Loads

P Sri Kavitha, B Subba Reddy


A dynamic power channel executed with a four-leg voltage-source inverter utilizing a prescient control conspire is exhibited. The utilization of a four-leg voltage-source inverter permits the remuneration of current consonant parts, and in addition lopsided current created by single-stage nonlinear burdens. A point by point yet basic numerical model of the dynamic power channel, including the impact of the proportional power framework impedance, is determined and used to outline the prescient control calculation.


A fluffy controller is intended to relieve the aggregate symphonious contortion. The pay execution of the proposed dynamic power channel and the related control plot under relentless state and transient working conditions is shown through recreations utilizing MATLAB/SIMULINK condition.
