Résumé : 

Generally, low harmonic frequencies such as the harmonic of the order 5 and 7 have agreat influence to deteriorate the network current and interim the grid power factor. The objectiveis; to cancel out the selected harmonic order from the network current. The shapes of waves andthe values of the THD of the network current before and after applying the proposed techniqueare introduced. The system is simulated and investigated using MATLAB/Simulink. The resultsprove the effectiveness of the design and control strategy (α-β). This paper deals with design,analysis and simulation of a three phase three wire shunt selective active power filter. Itcompensates the harmonic currents selectively under balanced power network. In order toimprove, the power factor of the supply network, an advanced control approach based on amultivariable filter is adopted. The novelty of the proposed control approach developed in thispaper is to use a multi-variable filter (MVF), which can extract the harmonics content of loadcurrent reference, according to the axis of Concordia.
