This paper presents a harmonic detection using Sliding Window with Fourier Analysis (SWFA) for computing the reference current of active power filter in single-phase power systems. The SWFA method is able to detect harmonic accurately and precisely with rapid processing. Ideal current source is used as active power filter for focusing on the harmonic detection performance. For testing the harmonic elimination, the SimPowerSystems Blockset and Simulink in MATLAB were used for simulation program. Therefore, The simulation result shows that the active power filter with the reference current computed by SWFA can provide the good performance compensation. The source current after compensation are nearly sinusoidal waveform and the total harmonic distortion (%THD) follows the frame of IEEE std.519-2014
