Abstract

The conversion and control for the utilization of power generated from energy sources can be performed using a power electronic converter system. The voltage source inverter (VSI) is one of the commonly used converter topologies, being controlled by a switching control algorithm for power conversion. Finite set-model predictive control (FS-MPC) is a modern switching control algorithm and has received significant attention due to its predictive nature. In this paper, the implementation of FS-MPC is presented for the load-side current control of a three-phase VSI system using an integrated platform of MATLAB/Simulink and Xilinx system generator (XSG). The XSG provides the functionality of digital design and intuitive implementation of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) controlled systems. The additional functionality of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) co-simulation using FPGA is used for the testing and validation of controller performance. The controller performance is validated through three platforms: MATLAB/Simulink, XSG and HIL co-simulation using ZedBoard Zynq evaluation and development FPGA kit. View Full-Text
