Abstract: This paper presents the study of harmonics present in the system & harmonics filter of primarily used in electrical system & worldwide. Through this paper we come to know about the harmonics & their significance effect on the system regarding the harmonics distortion caused by non- linear load such as computers, Variable frequency drives, & rectifier circuit. In this presentation we presented some of simple but not the least harmonics filter which is given as PASSIVE SHUNT FILTERS are also introduced with their respective designing methods. The basic object of this paper is to study about the designing of passive shunt type filter for the distribution system. These filters are very much affective in reduction of harmonics & distortion in voltage caused by non linear load. Here we studied design process of single tuned & high pass filter. The major objective in this study will tell us the use of shunt passive filter, their designing criteria.
