This paper describes a new approach to design voltage source converter based on shunt active power filter (APF) to reduce the harmonics. The design approach uses a selective harmonic elimination method. In this approach certain harmonic current components of load are compensated by the active power filter. The proposed selective harmonic elimination approach has been implemented using a voltage source converter based on active power filter for the elimination of current harmonics considering six pulse rectifier load. Simulation and field test results have shown that selective harmonic elimination method can be successfully applied to a voltage source converter based on active power filter for reduction of harmonics.
