This paper presents the results for the performance of passive and active power filter to reduce harmonics in the distribution system. The harmonics analysis is performed in order to observe the percentage reduction of amplitude current harmonics and total harmonic distortion for passive and active power filter at various loads. In addition to that the bidirectional switching is used as a strategy control in active power filter. Representative result of circuit simulations is carried out. The results show that the active power filter can simultaneously attenuate various frequencies and are compared with passive filter which is only filtering an individual harmonics. Also, the significant percentage of reduction for the amplitude current harmonics and total harmonic distortion by active power filter are compared to passive filter. Furthermore, the sinusoidal current waveform quality at distribution lines which filtered by active power filter is better compared with passive filter. Therefore, the active power filter is good to reduce harmonics in the electrical distribution systems.
