In this paper, a control algorithm for the performance improvement of three-phase three-wired active power filters under nonideal mains voltages is proposed and analyzed. It begins with an analysis of instantaneous reactive power algorithm that was previously applied to the three-phase active power filter design. In that design, the circuit performance was found unsatisfactory under nonideal test scenarios. Our proposed design was, therefore, motivated in order to solve such problems. In the proposed scheme, not only was the control circuit simplified, but it also served as a potential candidate for the performance improvement of active filter design. The proposed algorithm has been implemented as a prototype. Results of experimental verification under various scenarios are presented.
