This paper presents the design of a hierarchical neuro-fuzzy current control scheme for a shunt active power filter compared with a single fuzzy controller scheme. A single fuzzy controller scheme is presented first and an ANFIS based neuro-fuzzy controller is connected hierarchically to the first one to improve the performance. Simulation results show that harmonic compensation is achieved with both schemes, however switching performance is superior for hierarchical scheme. The method of switching controller development in this paper is new and can be applied to other power electronic converter applications for improved performance.
