Current Ripple Damping Control to Minimize Impedance Network for Single-Phase Quasi-Z Source Inverter System Academic Article uri icon


  • 2005-2012 IEEE. The single-phase quasi-Z source inverter (qZSI) topology has recently attracted attention for single-phase grid-tie photovoltaic (PV) applications. However, due to the inherent second-harmonic power flow in single-phase systems, a large qZS network is required to reduce the second-harmonic component of currents and voltages on the dc side. Minimization of the qZS network remains an open issue. This paper proposes a technique that minimizes the qZS capacitance and inductance of the single-phase qZSI topology by employing dc-side low-frequency current ripple damping control. Through analysis of power flow, a second-harmonic power model is derived and the ripple power is analyzed for minimization of the qZS network. A current ripple damping control is proposed to ensure suppression of second-harmonic power flow through the inductors. Simulation and experimental results verify the theoretical analysis, damping control, and the proposed design minimization of the qZS network for the single-phase topology.
