A control algorithm for a three-phase hybrid power filter is proposed. It is constituted by a series active filter and a passive filter connected in parallel with the load. The control strategy is based on the vectorial theory dual formulation of instantaneous reactive power, so that the voltage waveform injected by the active filter is able to compensate the reactive power and the load current harmonics and to balance asymmetrical loads. The proposed algorithm also improves the behavior of the passive filter. Simulations have been carried out on the MATLAB-Simulink platform with different loads and with variation in the source impedance. This analysis allowed an experimental prototype to be developed. Experimental and simulation results are presented.
