Active Power Filter Control Using Adaptive Signal Processing Techniques


In this paper a new Active Power Filter (APF) control method is proposed. Computation of the load harmonic compensation current is performed by the adaptive notch infinite impulse response (IIR) filter. Performance of the proposed scheme has been verified by computer simulation. MATLAB/SIMULINK power system toolbox is used to simulate the proposed system. The simulation results are presented and confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.
