Abstract

Due to the increased use of nonlinear loads, the problem of power harmonics becomes more and more complex. This work investigates the reduction of Harmonics in voltage controlled single phase full bridge inverter. The mapping state-space equations are generated by examining the single phase full bridge inverter. The PI and fuzzy logic controllers are used for the experimental simulation in this study. Experimental simulation clearly indicates that fuzzy logic controller reduces the total Harmonic distortion better than the conventional PI controller.
