This paper proposes a novel approach to adapt a conventional direct power control (DPC) for high-power applications, where a third-order LCL filter is frequently required. The LCL filter can cause a strong resonance and requires additional effort for system control. The application of a DPC for the control of a three-phase voltage source inverter that is connected to the grid through an filter has not yet been considered. The addition of an active damping strategy, together with a harmonic rejection control loop, to the conventional DPC is proposed and analyzed in this paper. The steady-state, as well as the dynamic performance of the proposed system, is verified with simulation results and experimental measurements.
