Improving the Shunt Active Power Filter Performance Using Synchronous Reference Frame PI Based Controller with Anti-Windup Scheme
In this paper the reference current for Voltage Source
Converter (VSC) of the Shunt Active Power Filter (SAPF) is
generated using Synchronous Reference Frame method,
incorporating the PI controller with anti-windup scheme. The
proposed method improves the harmonic filtering by compensating
the winding up phenomenon caused by the integral term of the PI
Using Reference Frame Transformation, the current is transformed
from om a - b - c stationery frame to rotating 0 - d - q frame. Using
the PI controller, the current in the 0 - d - q frame is controlled to
get the desired reference signal. A controller with integral action
combined with an actuator that becomes saturated can give some
undesirable effects. If the control error is so large that the integrator
saturates the actuator, the feedback path becomes ineffective because
the actuator will remain saturated even if the process output changes.
The integrator being an unstable system may then integrate to a very
large value, the phenomenon known as integrator windup.
Implementing the integrator anti-windup circuit turns off the
integrator action when the actuator saturates, hence improving the
performance of the SAPF and dynamically compensating harmonics
in the power network. In this paper the system performance is
examined with Shunt Active Power Filter simulation model.

Control Algorithm for Shunt Active Power Filter using Synchronous Reference Frame Theory
This paper presents a method for obtaining the
desired reference current for Voltage Source Converter (VSC) of the Shunt Active Power Filter (SAPF) using Synchronous Reference Frame Theory. The method relies on the performance of the Proportional-Integral (PI) controller for
obtaining the best control performance of the SAPF. To
improve the performance of the PI controller, the feedback
path to the integral term is introduced to compensate the
winding up phenomenon due to integrator. Using Reference
Frame Transformation, reference signals are transformed from
a - b - c stationery frame to 0 - d - q rotating frame.
Using the PI controller, the reference signals in the 0 - d - q rotating frame are controlled to get the desired reference signals for the Pulse Width Modulation. The synchronizer, the Phase Locked Loop (PLL) with PI filter is used for
synchronization, with much emphasis on minimizing delays. The system performance is examined with Shunt Active Power Filter simulation model.
