Abstract:

Due to the wide spread of power electronics equipment in modern electrical systems, the increase of the harmonics disturbance in the ac mains currents has became a major concern due to the adverse effects on all equipment. This paper presents the analysis and simulation using Matlab Simulink of a three-phase four wire neutral clamped active power filter (APF) compensating the harmonics and reactive power created by nonlinear balanced and unbalanced low power loads in steady state and in transients. The usefulness of the simulation approach to APF is demonstrated so APF designers have a better insight using Matlab Simulink in order to develop new APFs.
