This paper presents a multi-objective optimization algorithm based design and control of harmonic filters in a practical system. The selected system is an interconnected system consisting of nonlinear loads. The harmonics injected by the nonlinear loads are propagated through the system and lead to deteriorated power quality at the terminals of all the connected loads. The proposed methodology is selected such as to minimize total harmonic current and voltage distortion introduced into point of couplings and losses and to improve the source power factor. The optimization of the objectives is achieved with bacterial foraging algorithm. Simulation and experimental results verify the performance of the algorithm.
