H∞ Robust Control of an LCL-Type Grid-Connected Inverter with Large-Scale Grid Impedance Perturbation
AbstractIn the distributed power generation system (DPGS), there may be a large range perturbation values of equivalent grid impedance at the point of common coupling (PCC). Perturbation of the impedance will cause resonant frequency variation of the Inductance Capacitance Inductance (LCL) filter on a large scale, affecting the quality of the grid current of the grid-connected inverter (GCI) and even causing resonance. To deal with this problem, a novel H∞ robust control strategy based on mixed-sensitivity optimization is proposed in this paper. Its generalized controlled object is augmented by properly selecting weighting functions in order to consider both tracking performance around power frequency and the stability margin in a high frequency of the GCI. For convenient implementation, the H∞ robust controller is simplified by model reduction from the seventh order to the third order. By comparison with a traditional control strategy with a quasi-proportional resonance controller, the proposed H∞ robust control strategy avoids crossing 180 degrees at the resonant frequency point in the phase frequency characteristic of current loop, and moves the phase frequency characteristic left. It guarantees a sufficient margin of stability throughout the designed range of grid impedance perturbation values and avoids the difficulty of parameter setting. Finally, the experimental results support the theoretical analyses and demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed strategy. View Full-Text
