H-Infinity Control of an Adaptive Hybrid Active Power Filter for Power Quality Compensation
Abstract: This article highlights an optimal robust control technique called H-infinity, which thanks to a particular algorithm offers several solutions in the experimental implementation of harmonic compensators of systems with API-siemens modules. This control and command technique is directly tested on a TLC adaptive hybrid filter topology that provides benefits, such as reduced switching losses when injecting currents in the network, limitation of resonance problems and above all low power consumption at the DC bus level, thus allowing us to obtain results for 105 V to be compared with existing models in the literature which require 600 V for the same performance. This article therefore simultaneously offers two essential contributions to the optimization of harmonic pollution control. A first contribution is essentially based on the H-infinite algorithm and its particularity in its implementation on our TLC hybrid model. The second is on the advantages offered by the TLC-HAPF hybrid topology. The results obtained with this algorithm give us THDs conforming to the IEEE 519-1996 and which are very meaningful compared to the results obtained with other robust and stochastic control algorithms taken under the same conditions.
