This paper presents a combined system of a capacitor, a thyristor controlled reactor (TCR) and a small-rated active filter (PWM-VSI) whose goal is to obtain a regulation of reactive power with a generation of harmonic currents very reduced. The electrical analysis and filtering characteristics (and size of the active unit) are discussed theoretically and several situations are simulated.
