This paper proposes a harmonic compensation control with disturbance rejection function for a standalone inverter. Due to the LC type three-phase three-leg inverter is connected to nonlinear loads, low-order harmonic components appears in the inverter output current. These harmonic current generate harmonic voltage drops when flowing through the filter inductor and the feeder impedance, which causes the output voltage of the inverter distorted. In order to compensate harmonics and produce sinusoidal voltage without additional compensation devices, virtual harmonic impedance method can be added to the fundamental voltage control. Due to the compensation effect of virtual harmonic impedance are very sensitive to the fluctuation of filter inductance. Therefore, inductance variation, as a disturbance in physical system, should be considered. In this paper, linear active disturbance rejection control (LADRC) is proposed in the fundamental voltage control loop to reduce the sensitivity of virtual harmonic impedance and decouple the model. Compared with traditional dual-loop PI control, the proposed strategy has faster dynamic response in control performance and fewer acquisition modules in engineering applications. The whole design process of virtual harmonic impedance and stability analyses of this strategy are provided. The simulation and experiment results show the good performance of the proposed strategy.
