In this paper, an adaptive Radial Basis Function Neural Networks (RBFNN) algorithm is used to estimate the fundamental and harmonic components of nonlinear load current. The performance of the adaptive RBFNN is evaluated based on the difference between the original signal and the constructed signal (the summation between fundamental and harmonic components). Also, an extensive investigation is carried out to propose a systematic and optimal selection of the Adaptive RBFNN parameters. These parameters will ensure fast and stable convergence and minimum estimation error. The results show an improving for fundamental and harmonics estimation comparing to the conventional RBFNN. Also, the results show how to control the computational steps and how they are related to the estimation error. The methodology used in this paper facilitates the development and design of signal processing and control systems.
