This paper presents a new control strategy to improve the performance of the PWM boost type rectifier when operating under an unbalanced supply. An analytical solution for harmonic elimination under unbalanced input voltages is obtained resulting in a smooth (constant) power flow from AC to DC side in spite of the unbalanced voltage condition. Based on the analysis of the open loop configuration, a closed loop control solution is proposed. Simulation results show excellent response and stable operation of the new rectifier control algorithm. A laboratory prototype has been designed to verify the discussions and analyses done in this paper. Theoretical and experimental results show excellent agreement. Elimination of the possibility of low order AC and DC side harmonics due to unbalance is expected to materially affect the cost of DC link capacitor and AC side filter. The proposed method will be particularly useful in applications where the large second harmonic at the DC link may have a severe impact on system stability of multiply connected converters on a common link
