This study presents a multiple harmonic elimination-based feedback controller for shunt hybrid active power filter (SHAPF) to perform an effective harmonic compensation performance in a wide harmonic frequency band. The conventional control methods presented for SHAPF cannot perform an adequate performance, because of the disturbances such as phase delays caused by controller methods and measurement circuitries, tolerances of passive filter components and supply voltage harmonics. In the proposed controller, the conventional feedback controller is improved by using supply side individual current harmonics which are extracted by the synchronous reference frame method. To prevent the performance degradation effects of disturbances, proportional-integral controllers are applied to each d and q components of individual current harmonics. The compensation performance of the proposed method is compared with conventional methods both theoretically and experimentally. The experimental results verify the advanced harmonic compensation performance of the proposed control method.
