A new control concept for inverters with both DC-side and AC-side filter circuits is presented. As an example, the method is applied to a current source inverter (CSI). Oscillations of both filter circuits are actively damped by the proposed control method. The control method enables the use of much smaller filter elements, especially the DC-side inductor, compared with conventional control methods. The method is composed of two hysteresis controllers, one for controlling the direct current and the other one is a space-vector based hysteresis controller for AC-side capacitor voltages. When the controlled quantity at the AC- or at the DC-side leaves its hysteresis area, each controller suggests a new switching state, which will force its controlled quantity back into its hysteresis area. But very often these two controllers compete with each other and make different suggestions. Then a compromise has to be found. To arrange such a compromise each controller assesses all possible switching states of the CSI. Each controller assigns a mark ranging from 6 (very good) to 1 (very bad) to each of the possible switching states. Then the marks from the DC-side controller and those form the AC side are multiplied for each of the seven possible switching states. The switching state that gains the highest multiplied mark is the optimum compromise and is realised by the CSI
