Abstract

The design of Passive Power Filters (PPFs) has been widely acknowledged as an optimization problem. This paper addresses the PPF parameters design problem using the novel Manta Ray Foraging Optimization (MRFO) algorithm. Moreover, an analytical method based on Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) is proposed to investigate the harmonic performance of such an optimally designed PPF with variations in power networks. The MRFO algorithm has shown a superior solution-finding ability, but a relatively higher computational effort in comparison with other recently proposed algorithms. The harmonic performance of the optimal PPF solution with uncertainties was analyzed using the proposed method. The results imply that the optimally designed PPF can effectively attenuate the high-order harmonics and improved the system performance parameters over different operating conditions to continually comply with the standard limits. The proposed MCS method showed that the optimally designed PPF reduced the voltage and current distortions by roughly 54% and 30%, respectively, and improved the network hosting capacity by 10% for the worst-case scenario.
