Modular Multilevel Converter, Shunt Active Power Filter

This paper presents a shunt active filter based on modular multilevel converter (MMC).The main objective is to eliminate the current harmonics for enriching the power quality. Low output current total harmonic distortion (THD), high modularity, low power device stress etc. can be achieved using MMC. The current controller of shunt active filter is based on DQ reference theory and make use of PWM technique for switching strategy.
