Design of an Active Power Filter using Genetic Algorithm Technique

Abstract

-This paper deals with the active power filter design controlled by using hysteresis technique. The genetic algorithm is used to design the controllers to minimize the %THD of the source current. The results are compared with that designed from Ingram and Round approach. The simulation results confirm that the genetic algorithm can provide the minimum %THD of the source current compared with the Ingram and Round method. The %THD also follows the IEEE std.519-1992.The design of the active power filter based on the genetic algorithm is flexible and can improve the performance of the filter.
