f] is slightly different between the cases (1) where the steer angle input is a sinusoidal waveform, which has only one frequency component, and (2) where the steer angle input is an arbitrary waveform with multiple frequency components, for example, a rectangular wave form.
Instead, passive or active harmonic filters may be added to the power network to mitigate sinusoidal waveform distortion and improve power factor.
Figure 6(b) shows that the operation of the APF with the Euler predictive current control and the P-Q theory is maintained throughout the filter inductance step, since the sinusoidal waveform quality of the supply currents is stable as shown in Figure 6(b), ensuring reliable operation of the APF and, therefore, the predictive controller is likely to be compliant under dynamic conditions, a typical requirement for control techniques; however, the amplitude of the filter current waveforms slightly fell from 2 A to 1.
