The proposed system used to design a Fuzzy logiccontroller system based intelligent power quality conditioner is consist both the series and shunt active filter using a common DC link capacitors. The proposed system used to eliminate the harmonics, voltage which is developed because of fault which causes failure of the power system. Intelligent controllers are used in nonlinear control system mostly. The proposed fuzzy controller is not in the need of a mathematical model and the produce a good dynamic response. The simulations carried out using the MATLAB software. The real time implementation of the proposed system is carried out with the use of power electronic components. The proposed system simulation and hardware results are similar to each other. The power quality conditioner is able to improve the power quality on power systems in industrial and in the distribution area.
