In this paper an extensive review of AF`s has been presented to give a general viewpoint on this wide-ranging and rapidly developing topic. Large number of configurations for AF are presented here to compensate harmonic current, unbalance current, neutral current and reactive power. As there is a significant reduction in cost of both semiconductor devices and signal-processing devices and which makes more frequent use and selection of APF with the required features.
