1.4 Different harmonic reduction Technique.

Many harmonic reduction methods exist. These techniques based on passive components, mixing single and three-phase diode rectifiers, and power electronics techniques as: multi-pulse rectifiers, active filters and PWM rectifiers (Fig. 1.1). They can be generally divided as:

A) harmonic reduction of already installed non-linear load;

B) harmonic reduction through linear power electronics installation.

Rectifiers, their advantages, and disadvantages

Power electronics in broader aspect actually controls the flow of power to make it suitable to be used by diverse type of instruments and appliances. The ability to control the flow of power is derived from using solid state switches along with their controllers.

PWM Rectifier

The most interesting reduction technique of current harmonic is a PWM (active) rectifier (Fig. 1.3). Two types of PWM converters, with a voltage source output (Fig. 1.4) and a current source output (Fig. 1.5) can be used.

Active PWM filter

An alternative to the passive filter is use of the active PWM filter (AF), which displays better dynamics and controls the harmonic and fundamental currents. Active filters are mainly divided into two different types..
