FUZZY LOGIC CONTROLLER BASED ACTIVE POWER LINE CONDITIONERS FOR COMPENSATING REACTIVE POWER AND HARMONICS

Abstract
This article explores a novel fuzzy logic controller (FLC) based threephase shunt active power line conditioners (APLC) for power quality improvements due to the non-linear loads. The fuzzy logic controller is Mamdani-type and linguistic description, so it does not necessitate a mathematical model of the system. The FLC controller is capable of controlling harmonic current and dc-side capacitor voltage of the inverter to improve the performance of the active power filter. Hysteresis current controller (HCC) is used to generate the switching signals from the comparison of reference current and actual current for driving the current controlled voltage source inverter (VSI). Extensive simulation executed and tested under different non-linear load conditions. The simulation results reveal that the APLC with fuzzy logic controller is a perfect candidate for current harmonics and reactive power compensation.
