Voltage Source Inverters (VSI) commonly use the double loop control strategy, while new single loop control strategies have been proposed. In order to suppress the low-order harmonics, parallel resonant controllers are also introduced. This paper firstly makes a comparison of single loop and double loop control strategies, as viewed from transfer functions, and concludes that these two control strategies have almost the same dynamic response under low switching frequencies. Then deep analysis is carried out on problems existing in the present parallel resonant controllers design. On this basis, a novel single loop control strategy based on phase lead correction is proposed. It can simplify the control parameters designing, and dramatically improves the performance of VSI by adjusting the magnitude-phase characteristics of the controlled object. The analysis and experimental results show that the novel single-loop controller maintains low total harmonic distortion content and fast transient response. © 2013 Chin. Soc. for Elec. Eng.

This paper presents a strategy that considering the cutting in Phase Angle Error (PAE) between stator and grid as the initial value between rotor rotating frame and grid synchronizing rotating frame for analysis of the stator power taking into account of this PAE. Based on this theory, a novel Stator power function is presented related to this PAE, and is validated using PSIM 6.0 platform.

To determine the best modulation strategy in six-phase synchronous generator wind power system, the performances of three continuous modulation strategies are analyzed and compared. After analyzing switching voltage vectors distribution and the dwelling time determination for three continuous modulation strategy, namely, sine pulse width modulation (SPWM), dual three-phase space vector pulse width modulation (D3SVPWM), and maximum four vectors six-phase vector pulse width modulation (6SVPWM), the comparison results of switching times in one fundamental period and maximum modulation index are obtained. By analytical deducing and graph theory, the current ripple characteristics of three continuous modulation strategies are analyzed and compared. The comparison results show that the switching frequencies of SPWM and D3SVPWM are half of that of 6SVPWM when the sampling frequencies are equal; the DC voltage utilization rates of D3SVPWM and 6SVPWM are 1.155 times that of SPWM. When the equivalent inductance ratio of two sub-planes is no larger than 10, the current ripple of D3SVPWM is smaller than the other two modulation strategies. Overall, the performance of D3SVPWM is the best of all three continuous modulation strategies, which is verified by both simulation and experimental results. ©, 2014, Science Press.

The neutral point clamping (NPC) three-level converters have broad application prospects with megawatt wind turbines. The power losses of the switching devices must be considered in such high-power applications. Practical loss-calculating formulas are derived based on the analysis of the conduction and switching principles of the converters. The difference between the motor-side power converter (MPC) and the grid-side power converter (GPC) in power losses distribution is identified. Combined with the characteristics of wind power, the influence of power fluctuation on efficiency is also analyzed. It is concluded that the efficiency has positive correlation with the converted power. Simulation results of a co-simulation platform using MATLAB/Simulink and GH Bladed show the validity of the analysis. ©2014 State Grid Electric Power Research Institute Press

Compared with permanent magnet synchronous generator, electrical excited synchronous generator has the advantage of adjustable excitation. This paper presents an excitation control scheme which can regulate the stator voltage under variable speed operation situation. The RMS stator voltage and the rotate speed of the generator are obtained through a software phase-locked loop, and a PI regulator is used to control the stator voltage tracking the speed-votage curve. As the DC voltage is controlled constant in the converter topology, a set of excitation controller based on the chopper circuit is designed. It can meet the demand for automatic de-excitation without extra equipment. The proposed control algorithm and structure was simulated in the Matlab software platform and tested with the 1.5 MW synchronous generator. The simulation and experimental results show that the excitation control scheme is simple and reliable, with high rapid response capability and good effect of steady state control.

As a common solid-state switch, the thyristor bidirectional switch can be used in parallel with the back-to-back converter occasions, such as AC-HVDC hybrid transmission and wind turbine low-voltage-ride-through. A new forced turn-off strategy has been proposed, in order to shut down the thyristor immediately. The strategy makes use of DC bus by assigning switch status for IGBT of the converter, according to the direction of current flows through thyristors. Based on the model of second-order oscillation circuit, mathematical relationship of turn-off time and circuit parameters has been derived, while declination of DC voltage during the turn-off process has also been analyzed. Experiment results proved that the strategy can dramatically shorten the turn-off process of thyristor bidirectional switches, to guarantee fast response of the parallel converters.

The generating mechanism of circulating currents in parallel three-phase boost rectifiers is analyzed. A model of the circulating current in α-β-0 stationary coordinate system is established. Base on this, the circulating current is classified into three components: common-mode circulating current, differential-mode circulating current and high frequency circulating current. The affecting factors of three components are also revealed. With these understanding, controllers based on proportional and resonant regulators are designed separately for common-mode and differential-mode circulating current. Since rotating transformation and phase detection are eliminated in α-β-0 coordinate system, a simple structure and small computational cost are achieved. Experiments are carried out on a 600 kVA mutual-driving test-bed. The results prove the validity of the analysis and the proposed control strategy. © 2014 State Grid Electric Power Research Institute Press.

This paper discusses the application of dynamic voltage restorers (DVRs) for low voltage ride through (LVRT) of wind turbine generators. In order to enhance the dynamic performance of DVRs, a multiloop plus feedforward control strategy based on resonant regulator is proposed. The grid voltage feedward can limit the overshot of the compensation voltage. The resonant regulator was applied in the voltage loop, in order to achieve zero steady error, and omit the coordinate transformation and the phase-locked loop. In the meanwhile, the discussion for reactive power compensation capability of DVR under normal and faulty condition was also carried out. By categorizing and comparing different compensation strategies, the limitation of reactive power compensation capability for DVR was pointed out. The simulation results in Matlab/SIMULINK shows that the proposed strategy stabilizes the stator voltage quickly and effectively, limits the stator current overshoot, and realizes the LVRT smoothly. Finally, experiment was carried out on a 110kW motor platform.

In-depth analysis and comparison are made of the difference and relation between different closed-loop control strategies for LC-filtered voltage source inverters (VSI) from the perspective of the controller coordinate system, control loop structure and controller design. And it is pointed out that adoption of a separate resonant controller without output voltage decoupling achieves better control effects, but instability of the system will occur when there is one. Meanwhile, the difference between single-voltage-loop control and dual-closed-loop control is discussed. Finally, a VSI controller for use in uninterrupted power supply with motor load is designed. Experimental results show that, by using the design methods and conclusions under discussion, the process of designing the controller for VSI can be greatly shortened while achieving satisfactory performance. © 2013 State Grid Electric Power Research Institute Press.
