This paper deals with the design, control, and implementation of a three-phase ground power-supply unit for aircraft servicing. Instead of a classical back-to-back converter configuration, a three-phase direct ac-ac (matrix) converter has been used as the power conditioning core of the power supply, working in conjunction with input and output LC filters. An optimized control system in the ABC frame employing a repetitive controller has been successfully implemented, taking into account both the transient and steady-state performance targets together with the system effectiveness under extreme unbalanced conditions. Extensive experimental tests on a 7.5-kVA prototype prove the efficiency of the designed system in meeting the high demanding civil and military international standards requirements.
