Elimination of the Single Phase Parallel Active Power Filter Harmonic in Distribution Network

Olcay Palta, Hanifi Güldemir


In this work, the harmonics of the semiconductors used in industrial applications are given. Harmonics allowed voltage and current waveforms to move away from basic waveforms cause a decrease to power factor, an increase to power losses and damage to electronic elements. Harmonics formed by non-linear loads at the source were eliminated by means of Parallel Active Filter (PAF). A non-linear single-phase load model was formed by Matlab /Simulink program, and harmonics formed at source were simulated. Harmonics were eliminated by forming at single-phase PAF simulation environment.  Thus, power factor was enhanced and power losses were reduced to minimum.
