Authors(3) :-P. Lakshmipathi, P. Ramalingaiah, T. Muni Prakash

Solar energy technologies are need of the hour due the depletion of the existing conventional energy resources. The major advantage of solar energy is the eco friendly nature and abundant availability. The problem of harmonics persists everywhere in the power system whenever non linear load or static devices are involved. The ultimate goal of the power system to deliver quality power to the consumer. The paper describes the novel method of using Shunt active power filter in gird interfaced PV system in presence of static loads which exhibit non linearity between voltage and current. This system provides VAR compensation and also takes care about harmonics using droop control technique. The solar module is connected the power filter, where the DC-DC converter acts an interfacing medium.The solar module is combined with an appropriate power tracking algorithm which surpases the disadvantages of the usual traditional method. The simulation study shows the effectiveness of the proposed system. MATLAB Simulink platform is utilized to demonstrate the uniqueness of the proposed system
