Abstract: The power quality problem in the power system is increased with the use of non-linear devices. Due to the use of non-linear devices like power electronic converters, there is an increase in harmonic content in the source current. Due to this there is an increase in the losses, instability and poor voltage waveform. To mitigate the harmonics and provide the reactive power compensation, we use filters. There are different filters used in the power system. Passive filters provide limited compensation, so active filters can be used for variable compensation. In this paper, a shunt active filter has been made adaptive using a Variable Leaky Least Mean Square (VLLMS) based controller. Proposed adaptive controller can be able to compensate for harmonic currents, power factor and nonlinear load unbalance. DC capacitor voltage has been regulated at a desired level using a PI controller and a self-charging circuit technique. But, this scheme has two disadvantages such as, tuning issues of current controller pre-requisites the traditional PI controller, which is controlled by intelligent based Fuzzy-Logic controller for achieving good performance features. The design concept of proposed intelligent Fuzzy controller for shunt active filter has been verified through simulation analysis and results are presented with proper comparisons.
