Active Harmonic Filter(APF/AHF for short) is a perfect comprehensive solution to power quality problems with power grid such as harmonic wave(can filter 2nd to 50th harmonic interference completely), reactive power, and 3 phase load unbalance.
Active Harmonic Filter is connected in parallel in power grid, to detect the harmonic wave in power grid in real time, generate the -phase compensation current through the converter, and dynamically filter the harmonic wave in power grid. The operation of AHF is unaffected by power grid structure and load type, and it will not produce harmonic oscillation with the system, thus perfectly realizing harmonic wave control of various loads.
Active Harmoinc Filter can also realize dynamic reactive compensation, and control the capacitor switching, to improve the power factor of power grid. Meanwhile, AHF has the function of controlling the 3 phase load current unbalance, thus comprehensively solving various power quality problems with power grid.

Active Harmonic Filter is connected in parallel with non-linear loads, and uses one set of current transformers (CT) to detect the load current. It calculates each order harmonic current , and then generates a compensating current with the same amplitude but opposite phase angles to the detected harmonic current, which cancels out the original load harmonics.
The AHF not only eliminates harmonic current from the load side, but it also mitigates harmonic voltage caused by harmonic currents. The AHF system can also improve power factor (PF) and correct load imbalances in the power system.
