When full wave rectifier with filter is used, current on ac sides contains spikes. THD for this current is very high. This harmonics needs to be eliminated. This can be done using full bridge. Current on ac side of full bridge can be controlled easily.
Here, voltage of output capacitor is measured and subtracted with reference voltage. This difference is passed to PI controller which gives the value of power to be drawn from AC side to maintain the capacitor voltage. In steady state, this value is equal to power drawn by DC load. From the value of power, reference current in phase with input AC voltage is calcuated whose magnitude determined by the value of power to be drawn. In this way, reference current is calculated. This current is drawn from AC side where current being controlled by hysteresis band current controller. In this way, harmonics of current in AC side can be mitigated.

When I am increasing the load, THD value gets very big even when current drawn is few ampares. So is this system specifically designed for the load you used even if not then do I have to change few things in the system before I can use it for higher loads?

sir can u plz explain logic for calculation of reference current in this model.
if u have any related document den plz mail it to my email id

hi sir can i get related documents of this Simulink model
