Reduction of harmonic content in line current to a few percent allows avoiding most of the mentioned problems. Restrictions on current and voltage harmonics maintained in many countries through IEEE 519-1992 in the USA and IEC 61000-3-2/IEC 61000-3-4 in Europe standards, are associated with the popular idea of clean power.

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.

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..
