Power Quality Improvement using Series Active Filter for Matrix Converter Controlled Load
P. Jeno Paul , T. Ruban Deva Prakash and I. Jacob Raglend
 
Abstract: This study proposes a new methodology to minimize the power quality impact present in matrix converter’s output using a series active filter instead of passive filter. A matrix converter produces significant harmonics and nonstandard frequency components into load. The proposed approach eliminates the total load voltage harmonic distortions efficiently. The smaller THD, the harmonic pollution in the power system will be reduced and the power quality will be increased. The proposed approach has been tested and validated on the matrix converter using Matlab Simulink software. The simulation results are shown to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed scheme.
