Power Quality, Shunt Active Power Filter


Over the recent years, power quality has been given attention due to the intensively use of power electronic Controlled applications i.e. nonlinear load. The use of nonlinear load increasing day by day because it consumes less power as well as give some other benefits. Although these power electronics equipments make our life convenient, they inject harmonics into power system. Therefore the problem of Power Quality became very serious issue. The harmonics generated by the most common non-linear loads effects on amplitude and nature of source current hence the performance of the system. To overcome the above problems, new technique has been developed which is dynamic and adjustable solution to power quality problems. Such equipment is called an active filter and is able to compensate current and voltage harmonics.
