With the increasing attention towards conserving power, the existing trends towards distributive power generation system are much focused on investigating on renewable resources. One of the prime advantages of adoption of renewable resources is minimized cost of operation owing to reduced maintains as compared to the conventional power generators. Hence, the area of power electronics is also found to be inclined towards adoption of various forms of renewable resources. However, with the existing of non-linearity of the existing loads owing to the usage of modern electronic devices that runs of renewable resources, it generates potential amounts of harmonics, which should be control by using power filters. Hence, this paper introduces a technique for predictive control scheme using 4 leg voltage inverter for the addressing the problem of harmonic suppression. The core contribution of the paper is to presents a mathematical model and evaluates the presented scheme under various control state as well as operating situation.
