Abstract

Harmonics cause major problems in power system due to non linear loads. With the rapid growth in the utilization of the rectifier for critical loads, e.g. In computer or medical equipment the need for high quality uninterruptible power is increasing. The non-linear current drawn by the rectifier loads distort the output of UPS system. Mainly because of output filter impedance in UPS. A distorted output voltage will result in reduced dc-bus voltage or rectifier loads and may lead to excessive losses and heating. The main objective of this study is to eliminate harmonics and reduce the power loss in inverters. The harmonic separation process is implemented with a processor achieves low THD using Blind Signal separation. It is mostly used in medical instrumentation and medical applications like ECG, EEG.
