Power electronic devices play a vital role in manufacturing process, research and development because it delivers high efficiency, low cost, rapid operation, and optimal size. In recent years, power electronic devices have become widely employed in a variety of fields. Harmonics have a substantial impact on power systems and the main sources of harmonics are nonlinear loads and energy conversion devices such as static converters, choppers, cyclo-converters, battery charging systems, and heating elements, among others. To reduce harmonics, different filtration technologies are available, with the shunt active power filter being one of the most significant and effective. The performance of a shunt active power filter based on synchronous reference frame theory is explored and the efficiency is improved utilising the satin bower bird optimization approach.
