Parameters Optimization Design of Four-Switch Three-Phase Shunt Active Power Filter


Article Preview

The working capability and cost of four-switch three-phase (FSTP) shunt active power filter (APF) are determined by the parameter selection. Based on mathematical model of FSTP inverter, the effect of key parameters, such as dc-bus voltage level and capacitor voltage transform is analyzed. On account of ac output filter inductance, voltage and capacitance on dc side, output filter in the design of four-switch three-phase APF, this paper expounds the optimal selection approach of parameters, sets up simulation model in PSIM, correctness of the method is verified by simulation on the basis of analysis about law of effect.
