Abstract

The two major problems in the electrical industry today are sagging and swelling of line voltage and harmonic currents. Voltage sagging and swelling may result to equipment malfunction and shut down. Harmonics also affect the electrical equipment to fail and deteriorate the waveform of the current. To mitigate the voltage sags and swells, uninterrupted power supply was used. But uninterrupted power supply is an example of non-linear load which creates harmonics in the power system. Active power filters were used to eliminate the harmonics in the system. This study aims to create three models of active power filters that compensate the harmonics, mitigate the voltage sags and swells, and also correct the power factor. The models were simulated to know which of the three active power filter models gives the best performance. The simulation tools that were used in this study were MATLAB/Simulink. Based on the results, the active power filter models compensate the harmonics, mitigate the voltage sags and swells, and correct the power factor of the system. Evaluating the models, the active power filter Model-A gave the best performance by reducing the total harmonic distortion of the system.
