Power quality improvement using a shunt active power filter based on an cascaded H-bridge eleven level inverter with predictive current control

Yousfi Abdelkader, Abdelkader Chaker, Youcef Bot


The active power filter has proven to be an effective method for attenuating harmonic currents generated by non-linear loads as well as for compensating reactive power. This paper presents a comparison study between two control methods associated with a shunt active power filter based on eleven-level type cascaded inverter. The first method is based on the conventional PI regulator and the second is based on the predictive current controller. The eleven-level type cascade inverter has more advantages relatively to the two-level inverter; among them: better total harmonic distortion, reduced semiconductor switches ratings and reduced switching losses. The performance of the APF is tested by simulation using Matlab/Simulink. The predictive controlled the APF associated with the multi-level inverter shows more performances and efficiency compared to the conventional control algorithms.
