The appearance of harmonics in the grid voltage is an issue for the generation systems and grid connected consumers. This paper presents the basic control strategy to be implemented in Synchronous Power Control (SPC) based power converters, which contributes to reduce the harmonic content in the voltage by means of injecting different harmonic current to the grid using a separated virtual admittance algorithm. This control strategy is capable of generating such a current reference that attenuates the harmonic values at the point of connection of the converter.
