This paper proposes a novel control strategy for grid-connected voltage source inverters (VSI) with an LCL-filter. The strategy "split" the capacitor of LCL-filter into two parts, and the current flowing between these two parts is measured and used as the feedback of a current regulator to stabilize and improve the system performances. By this way, the inverter control system is simplified from third-order to first-order, and the close loop control system can easily be optimized for minimum steady-state error and current harmonic distortion. The characteristics of the inverter system with the proposed controller are investigated and compared with the traditional strategy. Simulations results are provided, and the new current control strategy has been experimentally tested on a 5kW fuel cell inverter.
