Design of LCL Filter to Mitigate Harmonics in GRID Interconnected System

Authors(2) :-Sumeet T. Sonule, R. S. Desai

Due to increasing power demand and bad effects of conventional energy sources on the environment, renewable energy sources are being important. For maximizing the power extracted from renewable energy sources such as solar and to transfer it to utility grid, power converters are being used. For maximizing the power, DC-DC boost converter plays an important role. The power generated from solar is DC and most of electrical equipments run on AC hence an inverter is required. Due to use of inverter, harmonics are generated in system. To mitigate the harmonics an LCL filter is often used. LCL filter design method with proper control technique is described in this paper. This design procedure and control techniques can be used for small and medium scale renewable energy sources.
