Renewable energy resources are now commonly used in distribution systems with the help of power electronic inverters. This paper presents a control strategy that improves power quality by grid interfaced inverter. Grid connected Current source inverter is capable of providing leading reactive current for static grid. Shunt active power filters compensate current unbalance and load current harmonics and also load reactive power demand. The current source inverter with shunt active power filter provides optimal energy conversion with high efficiency by controlling the reactive power and harmonics. Simulation of the proposed system is verified using MATLAB/Simulink software.
