Four-leg three-level converters for renewable energy. Analysis, modulation and control

Marcin Sędłak

Abstract

This PhD dissertation presents solution of power electronics interface between renewable energy source (RES) and four-wire low voltage electrical grid using three-level four-leg flying capacitor converter (FCC). Such solution enables elimination of Dyn transformer commonly used with three-leg converter in situations when islanding with asymmetrical load is possible. Based on analysis and comparison of different control methods, the method of independent control of phase currents by use proportional resonant controllers in natural coordinates was proposed. Such method gives possibility to eliminate coordinates transformations and to reduce number of controllers. In Chapter 3 outer hierarchical control structure composed of four levels was proposed. The main assumption of presented structure was treating DC link of the converter as a DC microgrid supplied from four sources: three grid phases as three AC sources and RES as a DC source. This approach allows to regenerate voltage of phase which is at the moment lack in the grid and make supplying of local load more flexible. Besides of describe of each level, way to tune all of controllers was shown. Next chapters present simulation and experimental results obtained in steady and dynamical states with nonlinear and asymmetrical local load at different conditions of electrical grid. Finally, the conclusions and future research works are given.
