| | PDF (919 KB) | HTML

Multilevel inverters have been widely applied in industries. A family of optimal pulsewidth modulation (PWM) methods for multilevel inverters, such as step modulation, can generate output voltage with less harmonic distortion than popular modulation strategies, such as the carrier-based sinusoidal PWM or the space vector PWM. However, some drawbacks limit the application of optimal PWM. One of suc... View full abstract»

This paper presents an optimal voltage-balancing compensator for a specific modulation technique applied to a neutral-point-clamped converter. The technique uses two modulation signals per phase, and it is called double-signal pulsewidth modulation. It completely eliminates low-frequency oscillations in the neutral-point voltage. However, it does not provide natural voltage balancing; therefore, a... View full abstract»

• Feed-Forward Space Vector Modulation for Single-Phase Multilevel Cascaded Converters With Any DC Voltage Ratio

Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):315 - 325
Cited by:  Papers (76)
| | PDF (1646 KB) | HTML

Modulation techniques for multilevel converters can create distorted output voltages and currents if the DC-link voltages are unbalanced. This situation can be avoided if the instantaneous DC voltage error is not taken into account in the modulation process. This paper proposes a feed-forward space vector modulation method for a single-phase multilevel cascade converter. Using this modulation tech... View full abstract»

Among converter control techniques, the direct current tracking methods give fast and accurate response with good dynamic performance. Unfortunately, in multiswitching systems, these techniques have certain drawbacks. In particular, when the number of controlled switching elements is greater than the number of independent currents, undesirable interactions arise between the control algorithms. Thi...

Active rectifiers interfacing the grid have gained much attention in recent years due to their current control capability that enables the application to exchange a certain range of power at the benefit of low harmonic distortion compared to line commutated converters. Moreover, the amount of active and reactive powers can be arbitrarily chosen within certain limits. These limits as well as the de... View full abstract»

Voltage-oriented PI control of three-phase grid-connected pulsewidth-modulation rectifiers with LCL filters is addressed. LCL filters require resonance damping. Active resonance damping is state of the art to face the problem, but it is still under investigation because of the manifold solutions. It is often realized using many sensors and/or complex control algorithms. In contrast, ... View full abstract»
