In order to reduce voltage distortion and supraharmonic (SH) emission in microgrid (MG) systems with electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, this research compares several harmonic elimination approaches. The increasing deployment of EVs has led to the integration of EV charging stations within MG systems, presents challenges in maintaining a high power quality (PQ). Voltage distortions and SH emissions are caused due to non-linear loads and the intermittent nature of EV charging, which have an effect on the performance and dependability of the MG. In order to solve these problems, multilevel converters (MLCs) are used to produce high-quality waveforms. MLCs use harmonic elimination methods to cut down on SH emissions, which improves the PQ overall. Sinusoidal pulse width modulation (PWM), selective harmonic elimination (SHE), space vector modulation (SVM), and random-PWM (RPWM) techniques are among the harmonic elimination methods compared and analyzed. The results will enable the selection of the most appropriate strategy for minimizing voltage distortion and SH emission in MG systems, while providing valuable insights into the effectiveness of each method.
