Abstract

This paper proposes a starting method of the harmonic current compensator using a hybrid active filter for wind power generation systems. The active filter (AF) in the proposed method of the hybrid power filter behaves as a resistor and reactive power compensator to suppress the inrush current and leading currents for the passive filter (PF) under the starting condition. The basic principle of the proposed starting method is discussed, and then confirmed by digital computer simulation using PSCAD/EMTDC. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed starting method can overcome the inrush and leading currents for the PF, building up the DC capacitor voltage of the AF.
