Adaptive hysteresis based fuzzy controlled shunt active power filter for mitigation of harmonics

Amara, Chandrasekhar (2013) Adaptive hysteresis based fuzzy controlled shunt active power filter for mitigation of harmonics. MTech thesis.



Active filters are widely employed in distribution system to reduce the harmonics produced by non-linear loads result in voltage distortion and leads to various power quality problems. In this work the simulation study of a Adaptive hysteresis based fuzzy logic controlled shunt active power filter capable of reducing the total harmonic distortion is presented. The advantage of fuzzy control is that it is based on a linguistic description and does not require a mathematical model of the system and it can adapt its gain according to the changes in load. The instantaneous p-q theory is used for calculating the compensating current. Fuzzy-adaptive hysteresis band technique is adopted for the current control to derive the switching signals for the voltage source inverter. The fuzzy-adaptive hysteresis band current controller changes the hysteresis bandwidth according to the supply voltage and slope of the reference compensator current wave. A fuzzy logic-based controller is developed to control the voltage of the DC Capacitor. This work presents and compares the performance of the fuzzy-adaptive controller with a conventional fuzzy and PI controller under constant load. The total Harmonic Distortion, Individual harmonic content with respect to % of fundamental in Supply current, source voltage have been analyzed. Various simulation results are presented. And also the performance of two current control techniques namely adaptive hysteresis current control and fixed hysteresis control techniques are compared with respect to average switching frequency. A neural network control method for regulating the DC Voltage across the capacitor connected to the inverter for harmonic suppression is proposed. The THD of the source current after compensation is well below 5%, the harmonic limit imposed by the IEEE-519 standard.
