Abstract: The increased penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is inspiring the entire design of conventional electrical power system. “A Microgrid (MG) includes distributed generation, loads, energy storage, and a control system that is competent of working in grid-connected mode and/or islanded mode. Power quality (PQ) problems are one of the major technical challenges in MG power system. To get better PQ of energy supply, it is essential to analyze the harmonics distortion of the system. Moreover, harmonic distortion in a MG networks has significantly reduced PQ, which affects the stability of the system. In order to diminish the harmonics, shunt active power filter (SAPF) has been extensively useful and it is verified to be the best solution to current harmonics. The present paper proposes the mitigation of harmonics of a MG system using shunt active power filter (SAPF). However, the SAPF is employed for reimbursing the harmonics concurrently in the distribution system. The proposed model is developed in MATLAB/Simulink and the result obtained validates the superiority of proposed technique over others in terms of harmonics elimination.”
