Abstract

This paper makes a proposal for a unified active power filter (UAPF) to reduce the total harmonic distortion (THD) in low voltage distribution networks. Thus, a photovoltaic (PV) generation is used as the UAPF's source, along with a boost converter. A non-linear load is in the seventh bus-bar of the IEEE 13-bar system, which serves as the test bench. discussing the effects of the system's voltage, current, and THD. As a result, the harmonics of the current (THDi) and voltage (THDv) decreased; they were reduced to 6 and 3 percentage points, respectively. The outcomes are within the parameters specified by the ARCERNNR -017/2020 resolution and IEEE 1159 standards.
