The integration of a series active filter with a 12-pulse diode rectifier can provide a cost-effective and efficient means of supply current harmonic-free AC/DC conversion. Controlling the series active filter as a frequency-selective impedance requires low delays and is not well suited for digital control. This paper suggests a current-mode control strategy to allow full digital control of the active filter. The suggested current-mode control method for supply current balancing and voltage regulation is verified experimentally.
