Model Predictive Direct Power Control for Nonredundant Fault Tolerant Grid-Connected Bidirectional Voltage Source Converter
AbstractThis paper proposes a model predictive direct power control scheme for nonredundant fault tolerant grid-connected bidirectional voltage source converter (BVSC) with balanced dc-link split capacitor voltage and high reliability. Based on the operation analysis of fault-tolerant BVSC with phase leg faults, a power predictive model of three-phase four-switch fault-tolerant topology in αβ coordinates is established, and the space voltage vectors with unbalanced dc-link split capacitor voltage are analyzed. According to the power predictive model and cost function, the optimal space voltage vector is selected to achieve a flexible, smooth transition between inverter and rectifier mode with direct power control. Pulse width modulation and phase locked loop are not required in the proposed method. The constraint of dc-link voltage constraint is designed for the cost function to achieve a central point of dc-link voltage offset suppression, which can reduce the risk of electrolytic capacitor failure for over-voltage operation. With the proposed control method, the converter can work continuously in both inverter mode and rectifier mode, even if phase leg faults occur. The simulation and experimental results show good steady-state and dynamic performance of the proposed control scheme to enhance the reliability of bidirectional power conversion. View Full-Text
