Keywords:active power filter, photovoltaic grid-connected, DC link capacitor, control strategy, harmonic compensation, cascaded multilevel
The wide spectrum of electromagnetism that explains current and voltage at specific time and location in a power system is referred to as power quality. Alternative energies are becoming more popular due to concerns about power quality, safety, and the environment, as well as commercial incentives. Moreover, photovoltaic (PV) energy is one of the most well-known renewable resources since it is free to gather, unlimited, and considerably cleaner. Active power filter (APF) is an effective means to dynamically suppress harmonics and solve power quality problems caused by the DC side voltage fluctuation. Therefore, this paper describes a substantial advancement in the harmonic suppression compensation algorithm, as well as the cascaded active power filter. Also, this paper focuses on compensating the error of photovoltaic grid-connected generation based on optimized H-bridge cascaded APF. The details of the working principle and topological structure of the APF used as the compensation device are analyzed. The H-bridge cascaded APF is optimized using the segmented variable step-length conductance increment (SVSLCI) algorithm. The overall cascaded APF control strategy is designed and simulated using MatLab/Simulink environment. By the simulation results comparing the existing traction network power quality control measures, before and after compensation, the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy is verified. The proposed controller strengthens the compensation of specific odd harmonics to improve the system work models and criteria to improve power quality. Moreover, the proposed algorithm showed positive significance for optimizing the quality of photovoltaic grid-connected power, reducing the current harmonic, and improving the equipment utilization of photovoltaic inverters.
