Elevation of power electronics technology, converter are the main causes for power quality issues, because of their high switching to reduce the harmonics injected by the nonlinear load, the filters are play a major role to improve a power quality improvement, particularly shunt active filter is more reliable for reduce a harmonic in power system network. This novel technique proposed for design a shunt active filter with solar photovoltaic array integrated into nonlinear load using a Point of Common Coupling (PCC) technique. Zero crossing detection technique are used to extract the magnitude of a fundamental active components of distorted load currents. The estimation of harmonic isolator and current compensation are controlled by Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) controller, different types of compensation techniques are used in this work Synchronous reference frame theory, instantaneous reactive power theory (PQ) and hysteresis current control technique. These techniques enable extraction of active power, regulates a load voltage and maintain a phasor sequence at PCC under the voltage sag and swell. Simulation is carried out by MATLAB/SIMULINK for different compensations techniques and Total Harmonics Distortion (THD) values are tabulated.
