Deadbeat Current Control of qZS Based Grid-Connected Multilevel Inverter Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2017 IEEE. This paper proposes a Current Deadbeat Control (DBC) algorithm for a three-phase 9-cells qZS based Cascaded H-Bridge (CHB) inverter to ensure grid current supply with low THD. The studied topology is considered as a single-stage DC/AC topology having the capability of boosting the DC input voltage with high-quality multilevel AC voltage, independent DC-link voltage compensation, and control of the power transfer with high reliability. Moreover, a Repetitive Controller (RC) is connected to the inductor current loop with the aim to reject periodic disturbances (double line-frequency fluctuations). The employed RC has the capability of learning through iterations based on tracking error. During the control, the compensation method uses the error between the DC-link peak voltage reference and the actual value to produce the compensating inductor current reference. Theoretical analysis and simulation results shows that the proposed solution achieves high dynamic performance and reduced cyclical disturbances effects.
