Abstract

This study investigates the application and functionality of pure active power filters for current compensation in single-phase power systems. A small scale proof of concept design was constructed, using components which were studied, justified, and chosen based upon desired characteristics. The components were simulated on several different platforms to analyze their potential design feasibility. Based upon the study and simulation of this system the pure active power filter can be confirmed as a reputable form of harmonic filtering for single-phase power systems.
