Abstract: As end users of Power supply system, we load the power system with large and different linear and non-linear loads like printers, computers etc. These devices load the power system and change the sinusoidal nature of the line current and voltage to a distorted wave form, which is undesirable.  The undesirable change may generate heat and damage other devices so it is necessary to mitigate this distortion by the use of filter. The problem is solved by the use of the proposed filter which is a combination of   Inductors and capacitors. This single Filter is designed to filter out or mitigate harmonics of different order before they could change the electrical property of the power system unlike other Filters which are designed for filtering a specific
