In this paper performance analysis of active power filter (APF) is studied for oil drilling rigs through real-time simulation. A typical oil drilling rig consisting of adjustable speed drives powered by diesel engine generators is modelled and simulated. Conventional filters are not suitable for autonomous power systems as the system is not stiff bus system. APF are better suited for this application. Performance of filters can be tuned and assessed accurately if they are tested under actual… CONTINUE READING
