This thesis involves design and simulation for switch mode converter based damping of three-phase LCL-filtered PWM converter widely used for grid-interface of renewable energy systems. The study involves the resonance damping of high power voltage source converters connected to the grid via LCL filters. The design is verified by means of detailed computer simulations. The study considers eliminating the resonant harmonics which results in overvoltage/current stresses and leads to the failure of the converter. Several power ratings and operating conditions are considered to provide a thorough performance evaluation of the designed system.

Adaptive control of DC link current in current source converter based STATCOM for improving its power losses
Karaduman, Ferdi; Ermiş, Muammer; Bilgin, Hazım Faruk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In conventional three-phase PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) current source converter based STATCOM (Static Synchronous Compensator) applications, DC link current is kept constant at a predefined value and the reactive power of STATCOM is controlled by varying modulation index. This control strategy causes unnecessary power losses especially when the reactive power of STATCOM is low. For this purpose, in order to reduce the active power drawn by STATCOM, the modulation index can be maximized by adjusting DC lin...

Bilgin, HF; Kose, KN; Zenginobuz, G; Ermiş, Muammer; Nalcaci, E; Cadirci, I; Kose, H (2000-10-04)
This paper describes the application of a single stage unity pf buck type PWM rectifier to medium and high power variable speed dc motor drives. The advantages of the developed system are low harmonic distortion in ac supply currents (comply with IEEE Std. 519 and IEC 555), nearly unity pf over a wide operating shaft speed range, nearly level armature -current and -voltage waveforms. These properties of output voltage and current quantities of the converter eliminate entirely any failure risk in current com...
Common-Mode Voltage Reduction Pulsewidth Modulation Techniques for Three-Phase Grid-Connected Converters
Hou, Chung-Chuan; Shih, Chih-Chung; Cheng, Po-Tai; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2013-04-01)
This paper experimentally investigates the performance of three-phase voltage source pulsewidth modulation (PWM) converter, with the grid interfaced photovoltaic energy conversion system being the main application. In such applications the ground leakage current [common mode current (CMC)] should be much less than an ampere and this is difficult to obtain in transformerless (direct) connected systems. With the target being the reduction of the common mode voltage (CMV) and CMC, the converter performance is ...
