Study of hybrid active power filter for power quality improvement

Sandeep, A (2014) Study of hybrid active power filter for power quality improvement. MTech thesis.



Now-a-days with the advancement of technology, the demand for electric power is increasing at an exponential rate. Many consumer appliances demand quality power continuously for their operation. The performance of the end user equipment is heavily dependent on the quality of power supplied to it. But the quality of power delivered to the end user is affected by various external and internal factors. They are like voltage and frequency variations, faults, outages etc. These power quality problems reduce the life time and efficiency of the equipment. Thus, to enhance the performance of the consumer equipment and also the overall performance of the system these problems should be mitigated. The main affect caused by these problems is the presence of harmonics. This leads to the overheating of the equipment, insulation failure and over speeding of induction motors etc. The solution to overcome these problems is to filter out these harmonics. For this purpose there are many filters topologies present in the literature. In this project a hybrid filter which is a combination of series active filter and shunt passive filter is studied. This project presents the control strategy to control the filter in such a way that the harmonics are reduced. The proposed control strategy is simulated in MATLAB SIMULINK and the results are presented.
