In the single-phase photovoltaic (PV) grid-connected distributed generation (DG) system located at the end of the feeder, it is necessary to provide quickly active and reactive power to the local loads. In this paper, an improved reactive current detection and power control method are proposed to realize active power control and reactive power compensation. To detect quickly the loads reactive current, a fast reactive current detection method using the derivative and ip-iq algorithm is presented, and it can overcome the long delay in a conventional phase-shift method. In the inner current loop, the quasi-proportional-resonant (QPR) control method with grid voltage feed-forward is presented to control accurately the grid current with zero steady error, and to reduce the current distortion due to the frequency offset and distortion of the grid voltage. The inner loop stability is analyzed, and the proper parameters are selected. In the outer loop, proportional-integrator (PI) controller is applied to stabilize the dc-link voltage, and power feed-forward is introduced to speed up system response. Simulation and experimental results verified the validity of the proposed control method.
