With the proliferation and increased use of power electronics devices (nonlinear loads) and motor loadings (such as: converters, adjustable speed drives (ASDs), bulk rectifiers, power supplies, elevators, large air conditioning systems, etc.) and also rapid increase in renewable energy generator in power grid, the power quality (PQ) problems become more serious, especially for lower power factor, harmonic pollution, unbalanced current, etc., which strongly affects the performance, efficiency and reliability of the power grid. Implementation of power filters is one of the solutions for PQ problems. In this presentation, active PQ compensators topologies and control strategies developed by University of Macau (UM) for solving PQ problems will be discussed.
