PROJECT TITLE :
The Transformerless Single-Phase Universal Active Power Filter for Harmonic and Reactive Power Compensation (2014)
This paper presents a universal active filter for harmonic and reactive power compensation for single-phase systems applications. The proposed system is a combination of parallel and series active filters without transformer. It is suitable for applications where size and weight are critical factors. The model of the system is derived and it is shown that the circulating current observed in the proposed active filter is an important quantity that must be controlled. A complete control system, including pulse-width modulation (PWM) techniques, is developed. Comparisons between the structures are made from weighted total harmonic distortion (WTHD). The steady-state analysis is also presented in order to demonstrate the possibility to obtain an optimum voltage angle reducing the current amplitude of both series and parallel converters and, consequently, the total losses of the system. Simulated and experimental results validate the theoretical considerations.
