In this study, a three-level hysteresis current-control (HCC) strategy is proposed for three-phase four-switch shunt active power filters. The four-switch topology which utilises four switching devices together with two series connected capacitors is able to reduce the cost, switching losses and improve the reliability of system. In this topology, when the current control of phases A and B is achieved successfully, the current control of phase C which is connected to the midpoint of the series connected capacitors is achieved automatically. The current control is achieved by using a three-level HCC strategy. An important consequence of using this control strategy is that it enables access to the zero level of the input voltage of active filter so that a switching device is only switched when the current error is negative, while it remains off when the current error is positive. Furthermore, the imbalance in the capacitor voltages is eliminated by adding a feedback term (the difference in the capacitor voltages multiplied by a suitable gain) to the current control. The proposed control strategy offers a reduced switching frequency, losses and cost. The steady-state and dynamic performance of the proposed control strategy is verified through simulations and experimental studies.
