Power Quality issues are becoming a major concern for today’s power system engineers. Large scale incorporation of non-linear loads has the potential to raise harmonic voltages and currents in an electrical distribution system to unacceptable high levels that can adversely affect the system. Active power filter (APF) based on power electronic technology is currently considered as the most competitive equipment for mitigation of harmonics and reactive power simultaneously. Instantaneous power theory is used for generation of reference current. This paper presents a comparative study of the performance of three current control strategies namely ramp comparison method, hysteresis current controller (HCC) and Adaptive hysteresis current controller(AHCC) and superiority of AHCC is established. Simulation results for all the method are presented using MATLAB/SIMULINK power system toolbox demonstrating the effectiveness of using adaptive hysteresis band.
