Harmonic-related problems such as communication noise, malfunctioning of the solid-state control circuit, etc., are often encountered in industrial plants that have a significant amount of rectification. Different techniques to eliminate harmonics current from power systems to the ground have been proposed and one of them is shunt HPF which is an effective and widely-used method for power quality improvement. This paper presents the idea of reusing the HPF harmonic current created based on STF–SRF theory to feed AC load within the limits of IEEE-519 (Less 5%). The circuit has been simulated in the MATLAB-Simulink and tested under distorted source voltage with varying loads. The outcomes of the simulations showed the THD at PCC to be less than 5% even when the HPF current was connected to the system (increasing the source current).
