Investigating The Ability Of Shunt Hybrid Power Filter Based On SRF Method Under Non-Ideal Supply Voltage


SRF Method This study presents the capacity of a self-tuning filter based on the synchronous reference frame method with a fuzzy logic controller for the improvement of the efficiency of harmonic suppression of a shunt hybrid active power filter in an unbalanced distorted and undistorted voltage supply conditions.


The simulation results indicated that the filter with a fuzzy logic controller had a good filtering performance in steady and transient states, irrespective of whether the voltage supply is distorted or unbalanced.

This paper investigated the effectiveness of a synchronous reference frame (SRF) with a self-tuning filter (STF) control strategy in controlling the performance of a three-phase SHAPF system under conditions of non-ideal and balanced supply voltage. The fuzzy logic controller was utilized for the adjustment of the DC voltage.


The performance of the SHAPF system was investigated under a dynamic and steady state and under different load operating conditions. The simulation results showed the SAPF to have successfully reduced current harmonics to about 1.7 and 2.7 % for both cases of source voltages.
