ABSTRACT In this Presentation, a new Active Power Filter (APF) control scheme has proposed to improve the performance of the APF. This presentation presents a new technique with instantaneous power theory (P-Q theory) in order to control of APF under non- ideal mains voltage conditions. Performance of the proposed scheme has been found feasible and excellent to that of the instantaneous reactive power algorithms under various non-ideal mains test scenarios. MATLAB/SIMULINK power system toolbox is used to simulate the proposed system. The proposed method’s performance is compared with conventional instantaneous power (P-Q) theory. The simulation results are presented and discussed showing the effectiveness of the control algorithm.

INTRODUCTION In a modern power system, increasing of loads and non-linear equipment's have been demanding the compensation of the disturbances caused for them. These nonlinear loads may cause poor power factor and high degree of harmonics. Active Power Filter (APF) can solve problems of harmonic and reactive power simultaneously. APF have the ability to adjust the amplitude of the synthesized ac voltage of the inverters by means of pulse width modulation or by control of the dc-link voltage, thus drawing either leading or lagging reactive power from the supply. Shunt APF’s allow the compensation of current harmonics and unbalance, together with power factor correction

POWER QUALITY IN POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
Power Quality can be defined as the physical physical characteristics of the electrical supply provided under normal operating conditions that do not disturb the customers process. Power Quality problem exists due to change in voltage, current or frequency deviation results in a failure or in a bad operation of the equipment. Power Quality problems are due to Natural Phenomena Switching Phenomena Connection of high power non linear loads Voltage Sags

SOLUTIONS TO THE POWER QUALTIY
There are two approaches to the mitigation of power quality problems. Load Conditioning Line Conditioning A flexible and versatile solution to voltage quality problems is offered by Active Power Filters. Shunt active power filters operate as a controllable current source series active power filters operates as a controllable voltage source Active Filter Connection Load on AC Supply AC Supply On Load Shunt Current Harmonic Filtering. Reactive current compensation. Current unbalance. Voltage Flicker Series Voltage Unbalance Voltage Sag/Swell. Voltage Unbalance. Voltage Distortion. Voltage Interruption. Voltage Flicker and notching.

PRINCIPLE OF ACTIVE POWER FILTER

The power converter is controlled to generate a compensation current, which is equal but opposite the harmonic and reactive currents generated from the nonlinear load. A voltage source inverter having IGBT switches and an energy storage capacitor on DC bus is implemented as a shunt APF.

TYPES OF ACITVE POWER FILTERS
Shunt Active Power Filters: It compensate current harmonics by injecting equal- but-opposite harmonic compensating current. It operates as a current source injecting the harmonic components generated by the load but phase shifted by 180deg. Fig. Compensation characteristics of a shunt active power filter

2. Series Active Power Filters:
Fig. Series active power filter topology It compensate current system distortion caused by non-linear loads. The high impedance imposed by the series APF is created by generating a voltage of the same frequency that the current harmonic component that needs to be eliminated. Voltage unbalance is corrected by compensating the fundamental frequency negative and zero sequence voltage components of the system.

Hybrid Active Power Filters:

The control of the load power factor imposed a higher voltage across the filter capacitor. This type of configuration is very convenient for compensation of high power medium voltage non linear loads

INSTANTANEOUS POWER THEORY
In three-phase circuits, instantaneous currents and voltages are converted to instantaneous space vectors. Three-phase currents and voltages are calculated as following equations In three-phase conventional instantaneous power is calculated as follows: P=eα.iα +eβ.iβ In fact, active power (p) is equal to following equation: P=ea.ia +eb.ib +ec.ic α and β are orthogonal coordinates.

Continued… Instantaneous real and imaginer powers are calculated as equation The above equation can be written as From above instantaneous compensating current as α and β Co ordinates are given below

PROPOSED METHOD It must be used when the voltages are distorted or unbalanced and sinusoidal currents are desired. In proposed method, instantaneous voltages are firs tconverted to α-β coordinates and then to stationary d-q coordinates. The produced d-q components of voltages are filtered and reverse converted α-β coordinates. These filtered α-β components of voltages are used in conventional instantaneous power theory.

SIMULATION RESULTS

CONCLUSION A new APF control scheme has been proposed to improve the performance of APF under non-ideal mains voltage scenarios. Experimental results in a scaled-down laboratory prototype will be done and reported in future paper. APF, based on the proposed theory, give satisfactory operation even when the system phase voltages are unsymmetrical and distorted, because no distortion appears in the line currents. The APF is found effective to meet IEEE 519 standard recommendations on harmonics levels in all of the non-ideal voltage conditions. The switching frequency and also switching losses are reduced %23 in proposed method
