Shunt Power Active Filter Control under NonIdeal Voltages Conditions

Authors: H. Abaali, M. T. Lamchich, M. Raoufi


In this paper, we propose the Modified Synchronous Detection (MSD) Method for determining the reference compensating currents of the shunt active power filter under non sinusoidal voltages conditions. For controlling the inverter switching we used the PI regulator. The numerical simulation results, using Power System Blockset Toolbox PSB of Matlab, from a complete structure, are presented and discussed.

Keywords: harmonic, unbalanced, shunt active power filter, Distorted, Modified Synchronous Detection Method, PI regulator
