The proposed scheme has considered a three-phase four-wire system, which experienced sag and swell in source voltage for a certain period while feeding an unbalanced and variable non-linear load. The load has unequal resistive and reactive elements in the three phases, forming the unbalanced component. A three-phase silicon controlled rectifier converter with adjustable firing angle connected to the load has formed the variable non-linear component. This has been considered, so as to simulate the unbalanced and variable non-linear  nature of loads in real-time power system. The trends in the total harmonic distortion variation were obtained for the proposed system under power factor correction and voltage regulation mode operation when the load-side converter firing angles of 30°, 60° and 90° were considered using MATLAB/SIMULINK software. Three pulse-width-modulation methods, namely, sinusoidal pulse-width-modulation, space vector modulation and hysteresis pulse-width-modulation have been used to generate pulses for the voltage source converter of the shunt active filter based on the reference currents generated using synchronous reference frame theory.  It has been demonstrated in the proposed paper that power factor correction, voltage regulation, better harmonic reduction and hence load compensation are obtained simultaneously by using two SAFs.
