This paper deals with an important aspect in the operation of single-phase grid-connected photovoltaic inverters, i.e., injecting low harmonic current into the electrical grid. Specifically, we propose a linear current control scheme with a resonant harmonic compensator connected in series with a tracking regulator (the standard harmonic compensator location is in parallel with the tracking regulator). The series connection provides an efficient attenuation of the grid voltage background distortion, an accurate synchronization with the grid voltage, and a low computational time in relation to the standard control scheme. Experimental results from a digital signal processor-based laboratory prototype validate the features of the proposed control scheme.
