Due to sensitivity of consumers on power quality and advancement in power electronics, Active Power Filters (APF) continue to attract considerable attention. APF technology is the most efficient way to compensate reactive power and cancel lower order harmonics generated by nonlinear loads. This paper presents a hysteresis current control technique based on unipolar Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with time and magnitude errors control to reduce switching losses and to improve the quality of output current. The validity of proposed method and achievement of desired compensation are shown by simulation results.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
