Abstract

Active power filters have been widely used for harmonic elimination. The performance of a conventional three-phase shunt Active Power Filter (APF) using Synchronous Detection Method (SDM) has been compared with Nonlinear Autoregressive-Moving Average (NARMA)-L2 based APF. The novelty of this study lies in the application of NARMA-L2 control to generate the amplitude of the reference supply current required by the APF circuit and the successful implementation of the APF system for harmonic elimination. The entire system has been modeled using MATLAB 6.1 toolbox. Simulation results demonstrate the applicability of NARMA-L2 controller for the control of APF.
