Abstract

Power electronic loads inject harmonic currents into the utility system. This paper presents a comparative evaluation of harmonic reduction techniques which satisfy the current harmonic limits specified by the IEEE Standard 519, and at the same time provide a regulated dc output voltage. The techniques considered include active and hybrid filters, and various current waveshaping approaches for a three-phase utility interface. These techniques are compared in terms of their complexity (number of switches) and their component ratings. Based on the application requirements and the cost of active and passive components, this paper enables the estimation of the minimum cost topology.
