 In the recent time we have been notifying a big change in the use of non‐linear loads. Due to this the value of harmonic non‐sinusoidal currents and voltages have also increased upto a greate extent in the system. These harmonic elements effect the overall power system as well as the client’s equipments also. So today the issue of maintaining the power quality is a big issue. In the recent times active power filters have been proposed as efficient for power quality improvement and reactive power compensation. In this paper we have discussed all the problems relating to the harmonics and how to eliminate them using SAPF.
