In this paper, a shunt active power filter (APF) based on unified constant frequency integration or one-cycle control (Smedley et al., 2001) for compensating unbalanced loads in a three-phase four-wire system is explored. The APF provides compensation currents in such a way that the utility supplies only the balanced fundamental current at unity power factor, even if the load draws reactive and harmonic currents. The scheme neither requires the service of a phase-locked loop nor requires to sense the utility voltages. This makes the scheme insensitive to the distortions that are generally present in the utility voltages. First, the one-cycle control technique is applied to a topology involving a four-leg converter for the proof of concept. Then it is utilized to control a conventional three-leg converter having a split-capacitor dc link. The effectiveness and the viability of the schemes are demonstrated through detailed simulation and experimental verification.
