- In this paper, a single phase voltage source voltage-controlled active power filter(APF) for power quality improvement was proposed. The proposed APF has the performance of harmonic suppression and unity power factor correction. The performance of harmonic suppression can be obtained by controlling the waveshape of the APF output voltage to be sine wave. And, unity power factor is controlled by the reactive power control loop of the APF output. Simulation and experimental results using diode rectifier showed that the voltage-controlled APF, unlike the current-controlled APF, can reduce the voltage harmonics as well as current harmonics. Also the results showed that the input power factor and power quality were greatly improved.
