Abstract
The evolution of growth in computers, laptops, uninterrupted power supplies, telecommunications and biomedical equipment has become overwhelming. Therefore, the use of such equipment results in a high power consumption and a small power density, which provided a large market for Distributed Power System (DPS). Conditioning of energy; In general, rectification is usually essential for electronic equipment. The rectifier behaves as a non-linear load that produces a non-sinusoidal line current due to the non-linear input characteristic. The constant growth of the use of electronic equipment has become a major problem according to the harmonic of the line current. Its adverse effects on the power system are recognized as healthy. Hence, in three-phase systems, the magnitude of the neutral current increases and becomes the cause of the overheating of transformers and induction motors, as well as the terrible conditions of the voltage waveforms of the system. There are a number of international standards to limit the harmonic content, caused due to the line currents of the equipment coupled to the electricity distribution networks. As a result, a reduction in line current harmonics, or Power factor correction - PFC is vital. This idea is the inspiration for this research effort. The objective is to improve the power factor almost with the minimum total harmonic distortion (THD).
