Effect of Reference Generation Schemes on the Performance of Shunt Active Filter: A Comparison
This paper deals with a comparative analysis of two different reference current generation schemes with respect to the use of abc-dq0 transformation, for the control of three phase Shunt Active Filter (SAF). Hysteresis current control is adapted for the generation of switching pulses for the Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) of SAF. The performances of these schemes are analyzed in a distribution system for extending harmonic compensation and complete reactive power support leading to unity input power factor. It is found from the simulation results that without using abc-dq0 transformation, the source current THD and unity input power factor is equally maintained within desirable limits, similar to the scheme employing transformation, but with less computational and implementation complexity.
