Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive study on the performance of Shunt Active Harmonic Filter (SAHF) for harmonic compensation, where Ant Colony Optimization technique is used for optimization purpose. This optimization technique operates for the optimal PI control parameters which regulate the DC link voltage. Instantaneous real and reactive power (p-q) theory is used for calculating compensating currents. The simulation results show that Shunt Active Harmonic Filter (SAHF) for six pulse controlled rectifier proves to be very effective in mitigation of the harmonics present for various firing angles. The simulation is carried out with the help of MATLAB-SIMULINK tool box.
