A novel dual single-input single-output (DSISO) model for a three-phase two-level PWM rectifier is proposed, in order to simplify the complicated structure of multiple input variables and multiple control objectives. In the proposed model, the three-phase PWM rectifier is equivalent to two single-phase PWM rectifiers in the α-β stationary reference frame, which is easier to analyze than a three-phase PWM rectifier. Based on the DSISO model, the small-signal model is derived, the control-to-output transfer function is deduced, and the design principle of the voltage controller is given. The control strategy is analyzed to determine switching control signals in a switching period. Experimental results confirm the validity of the DSISO model and the feasibility of the control strategy based on DSISO model.
