The proposed control scheme is based on the least mean square (LMS) algorithm. The LMS algorithm is employed to estimate the necessary reference tracking current for the active power filter (APF). The proposed control scheme aims to enhance the dynamic response of the APF and minimize steady-state error. The weights of the LMS technique are calculated based on the estimated current of the APF. This algorithm is employed to minimize the error difference between the desired system output and its actual output, known as the mean square error (MSE). The estimated weights are utilized to modify the reference current weights, enabling them to follow the intended current of the APF. The online adaption of the LMS method involves the real-time adjustment of the weights. The performance of the LMS-based APF control is evaluated through a simulation study in MATLAB/Simulink, where it is compared with the conventional control method.
