Advancement and extensive use of power electronic devices such as, fast switching uncontrolled/controlled convertors, invertors and cyclo-converters, high voltage power convertors used in HVDC, high voltage drives in traction system, arc furnaces, modern single phase electronic equipments like Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs), Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), Personal Computers (PCs), printers, battery chargers, fax machines, photocopiers etc. creates power quality problems, the measure of it was voltage and current harmonics, poor power factor, imbalance, reactive power compensation, voltage regulation etc. Ideally power system network must be electrically clean, harmonics free, balanced, sinusoidal with unity power factor and regulated. This work deals with the performance of Series-Shunt Power Quality Compensator (SSPQC) under distorted source voltages and load currents. In this work a novel control strategy of Synchronous Reference Frame (SRF) used to extract the fundamental reference voltage component and the ICC based technique used to predict source current which simplifies the computation and amplifies the system performance.
