In this paper, an implementation of Selective Harmonic Elimination Pulse Width Modulation (SHEPWM) as applied to a single phase AC chopper using Generalized Hopfield Neural Network (GHNN) is designed and implemented. The objective of this paper is to eliminate 5, 7, 11, 13th order harmonics in the output voltage waveform of the AC chopper while retaining fundamental component to the desired value. The switching angles corresponds to the above objective are obtained by solving a set of non-linear algebraic transcendental equations. The problem is redrafted as an optimization problem and it is solved by using GHNN.
