Harmonic Minimization in a Three-phase Asymmetrical PWM Rectifier

Ersak, Aydın
- A new pulse-width modulation (PWM) method for a three-phase bridge rectifier developed here gives minimized low order harmonics. As a PWM rectifier, it offers better input and output characteristics than phase-controlled rectifiers. It has inherited the chmcteristics of the PWM rectifier such as having high power factor at the input with low harmonic content of the input current and zero phase-shift of input voltage and current. The availability of power transistors at high power ratings enabled the implementation of PWM rectifiers much easily. The modulation method is applied to a dc-motor drive system at 1kW rating. A high speed micro-controller produces the switching pulses.


A CMOS High Frequency Pulse Width Modulation Integrated Circuit
Sahin, Osman Ulas; Kocer, Fatih (2016-08-05)
In this work, a high frequency pulse width modulation (PWM) integrated circuit (IC) designed and implemented in a commercial 0.35 mu m CMOS process is presented. Based on natural sampling method, the proposed PWM IC can generate both a PWM signal and its inverse for arbitrary frequencies up to 5 MHz. The PWM frequency can he adjusted via an external clock and an off-chip capacitor. The duty cycle of the PWM signal can be linearly varied from 5% to 95% by changing the input signal. Thanks to its analog trian...
High Performance Harmonic Isolation By Means of The Single-phase Series Active Filter Employing The Waveform Reconstruction Method
Senturk, Osman S.; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-09-24)
This paper proposes the Waveform Reconstruction Method (WRM), which is utilized in the single-phase Series Active Filter's (SAF's) control algorithm, in order to extract the load harmonic voltage component of voltage harmonic type single-phase diode rectifier loads. Employing WRM and the line current sampling delay reduction method (SDRM), a single-phase SAF compensated system provides higher harmonic isolation performance and higher stability margins compared to the system using conventional synchronous re...
Output Ripple Performance Evaluation and Comparison of 2L-VSI and 3L-VSI Considering the Spectral Characteristics
Özkan, Ziya; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2015-06-05)
In this paper, two-level and three-level voltage source inverters (2/3L-VSIs) with popular pulse width modulation (PWM) methods are investigated in terms of their output (ac-side) voltage and current ripple spectral characteristics and waveform quality properties such as peak-to-peak ripple, rms ripple, and weighted total harmonic distortion. As the switching frequency and the filter size influence the output waveform quality, the inverter efficiency (loss) constraint on the switching frequency, and the siz...
Performance comparison of passive series R and shunt R-C damped LCL filter for grid-connected inverters
Temiz, Hakan; Demirok, Erhan; Keysan, Ozan; Turkay, Ali; Cetinkaya, Burak (2019-07-01)
LCL filters are widely used in distributed power-generation systems to attenuate high-frequency harmonics caused by pulse-width modulation switching of grid-connected inverters. A resonance occurs due to the series-connected reactive components. In order to damp resonance effects, active and passive damping methods are used. Lower switching frequencies are typically preferred to decrease switching power losses with high-power applications. Thus, control bandwidth of the system is limited and implementation ...

Bilgin, HF; Kose, KN; Zenginobuz, G; Ermiş, Muammer; Nalcaci, E; Cadirci, I; Kose, H (2002-09-01)
This paper describes the application of a single-stage unity-power-factor buck-type pulsewidth modulation (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 (complying with IEEE Std. 519 and IEC 555), nearly unity power factor over a wide operating shaft speed range, and nearly level armature current and voltage waveforms. These properties of output voltage and current quantities of the converter ...
