  • Power quality in the present scenario is very important due to increased usage of semiconductor based electronic equipment and non-linear loads in various industrial applications.
  • This research projectwas carried out to identify, classify and mitigate certain power quality disturbance using power electronic converters, active filters by implementing novel asymmetrical and symmetrical PWM techniques. Simulation and hardware implementation of certain topologies of single phase and three phase AC to AC converters and active filters using high frequency four quadrant bidirectional switches connected to inductive loads are carried out for analysing input power factor, harmonic profile at different switching frequencies and efficiency of the converter.
  • The simulation results obtained using MATLAB Simulink are in good agreement with the hardware results. The simulation and hardware results obtained clearly shows that in order to increase the efficiency of the converter, both input power factor and harmonic profile has to be considered that plays a vital role in designing the circuit for compactness and economy of power electronic systems.
