Power Quality means maintaining purely sinusoidal current wave form in phase with a purely sinusoidal voltage wave form throughout in a power system. Due to intensive use of power converters and other non linear loads in industries, an increasing deterioration of the power system voltage and current waveforms has been observed. The most important cause for degrading power quality are harmonic distortion and low power factor. Conventionally, Passive filters have been used as a solution to solve harmonic current problems, but they are not capable of mitigating the low power factor problems. So an improved method of Active Power Filter (APF) used to eliminate the disturbances in current. This paper examines the control of Shunt Active Power Filter (SAPF) with Synchronous Reference Frame (SRF) detection method. Here a twelve pulse diode bridge rectifier will be the non linear load and the switching frequency is set to 10 kHz. Simulation analyses are done using Matlab/Simulink software.
