A New Harmonics Reduction Technique for Three-Phase Microgrid Operations

M. Ganesh, B. Sreenivas


There are many ongoing researches in the field of harmonic compensation using active and passive power filters or the combination of the two, which are known as hybrid power filters? These filters can be implemented as series or shunt units. For shunt compensation, the voltage rating of the components is usually higher, and the impedance of the filtering unit should be very high to block the flow of the fundamental harmonic. For the series compensation, the impedance for the fundamental components should be minimal. In order to improve the power quality, many control algorithms have been proposed for automatic and selective harmonic compensation.

In this project to ensuring power quality both in the grid current and PCC by harmonic elimination is presented. The proposed method is developed to take care of harmonics in grid-connected (GC) mode, as well as in the islanded or standalone (SA) mode of operation, where the main objective is to remove the harmonics from the grid current and the point of common coupling (PCC) voltage. The suggested placement of the harmonic reduction unit dictates the use of a special controller structure that uses the harmonics magnitude in the dq reference frame. In the proposed control algorithm, the required amount of attenuation for harmonics is determined to meet the total harmonic distortion.  Fast and efficient algorithm for phase detection irrespective of the presence of harmonics has been utilized for the system. The effectiveness of proposed method is further implemented by connecting induction motor to the output and performance of the motor is studied using Matlab/simulink software.
