In this thesis, the implementation of a generalized method of harmonic elimination for the PWM boost type rectifier under severe fault conditions in the power system is presented. This method has been implemented by using DSPACE RT1104 digital control system. Control loop has been designed for real-time DC link voltage regulation. The simulation and experimental results verify the feasibility of the control scheme for input-output harmonic elimination. With the proposed method, unity power factor can be achieved as well as low-order harmonic elimination. High quality input and output waveforms of the three-phase PWM boost type rectifier are obtained under extremely unbalanced operating conditions
