Abstract

The low harmonic distortion and reduced switching losses are the advantages of using the multilevel inverter. For this purpose, the three-level inverter is used in this paper as a three-phase four-leg shunt active power filter (SAPF). The SAPF is used to eliminate the harmonic current to compensate the reactive power current, and to balance the load currents under an unbalanced non-linear load. A fuzzy logic controller and self-tuning filters (STF) are used to control the active power filter (APF) and generate the reference current. To demonstrate the validity of the proposed control strategy, we compared it with a conventional p − q theory, under distortion voltage conditions and unbalanced non-linear load. The Matlab-Simulink toolbox is used to implement the algorithm of Fuzzy logic control. The performance of the SAPF controller is found very effective and adequate as compared with the p − q theory.
