Abstract: This paper proposes an efficient shunt active filter for harmonic reduction in hospital building electrical installation. Harmonic installation in distribution system is caused by non-linear electrical loads, especially those containing coils, such as air conditioners, pump machines, fans, and others. Harmonic can cause excessive heat in a distribution transformer that supplies an electrical installation in a multi-storey building. This heat is a power loss and has the potential to shorten the life of a distribution transformer, so that efforts are needed to reduce harmonics. One effective method to reduce harmonics is to use active filters. In this study, a shunt active filter application in the electrical installation of a hospital building was carried out. The results showed that the filter was able to reduce harmonic currents significantly, so that the harmonic threshold was still in accordance with the IEEE standard.
