During the last three decades different passive, active and hybrid filters have been investigated to deal with disadvantageous effects caused by harmonic currents and voltages, such as overheating of equipment and overcurrents in neutral wires. However, few topologies are able to eliminate the hazardous resonances which may arise in power systems equipped with power factor correctors. In an earlier publication, a so-called shunt hybrid power filter (SHPF) was proposed by the authors to shift… CONTINUE READING
