Today’s power systems are so modernized as they consist of networks which are very complex and utilize enormous number of non-linear electrical devices which has led to a distortion in the output sine waveforms of source current and voltage and these devices are considered to be the main source of harmonics and power factor poorness. This project concentrates on the design and application of three-phase Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) by using both partial integrated (PI) and fuzzy logic controller (FLC) to minimize the harmonics which are created by non-linear loads besides improving the power factor. Matlab/Simulink tool was used for modeling and obtaining the results, line voltage, source current and power factor. These results were verified before and after using the filter. The achieved results were within the recommended IEEE-519 standard.
