Abstract: This paper deals with the study of power quality issue and, simulation and implementation of a power electronic converter system to improve the power quality and protection to the converters. The present work is simulated for power system employing Active Shunt Filter (ASF) and Thyristor Switched Capacitor (TSC). The behavior of the power system for a designed controller with and without fault is simulated, and the results are presented in this paper. The experimental prototype for the overall system is implemented with the help of the solid-state circuit breaker (SSCB). The simulation is done with the MATLAB/Simulink, and the simulation results are verified with the prototype results, and finally, results are compared and presented for future work
Keywords: ASF, Fault Location, Power Electronic Converters, Power Quality, TSC
