This article presents a finite-set model predictive control (FS-MPC) applied to the shunt active power filters (SAPF) based on three-phase inverters connected in parallel sharing the same dc-link. The discrete-time model of the system is used to predict the future value of the grid, circulation, and offset currents. The presence of circulation and offset currents occurs due to the connection of the two inverters in parallel sharing the same dc-link. There are 64 switching state vectors for SAPF and, in order to reduce the burden of calculation, only 30 switching states are chosen and applied, however keeping the advantages of the FS-MPC algorithm. The control strategy ensures the sinusoidal shape of the grid current, high power factor, and circulating and offset currents suppression. The FS-MPC has its performance compared to the pulsewidth modulation (PWM) strategy considering the SAPF with two parallel inverters, the conventional SAPF and the neutral-point-clamped SAPF. These comparisons include harmonic distortion, power semiconductor losses, and analysis of dc-link capacitor losses. As a multilevel topology, the SAPF with two parallel inverters using FS-MPC present competitive efficiency and can be applied with a good performance in industrial and residential applications. Simulation results and a laboratory-scale experimental platform is used for corroborating the proposal.
