Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Power electronics is a key technology both for today and for the future. Its applications can be found in every aspect of our day to day life, such as home appliances, data/telecom centers, renewable energy systems, electric vehicles, microgrids, and charging stations. With increases in application, the performance requirements of power converters and inverters such as transient response and power density are increasing. This requires a better understanding of the power converter and its components. Therefore, the area of modeling and control of power electronics converters and inverters has received a lot of attention in recent years.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions for review and publication in this Special Issue on modeling and control of power converters and inverters. This Special Issue will deal with novel modeling and control techniques for power electronics converters and inverters. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • Computer-based modeling of power converters;
  • Advanced model of power electronics components;
  • CAD Techniques;
  • Advanced pulse width modulation of power converters;
  • Novel and advanced control strategies and high bandwidth control loop design for power electronics converters;
  • Coordinated control of parallel connected converters.

Abstract
This article presents a modified sinusoidal pulse-width modulation (SPWM) scheme for a five-phase, three-level neutral-point-clamped inverter. The modulation scheme deploys a modified min–max function to inject the zero-sequence components into the reference modulating signals; hence enabling the effective utilization of the DC-link voltage.

This article presents a modified sinusoidal pulse-width modulation (SPWM) scheme for a five-phase, three-level neutral-point-clamped inverter. The modulation scheme deploys a modified min–max function to inject the zero-sequence components into the reference modulating signals; hence enabling the effective utilization of the DC-link voltage. Balanced split-input DC-link voltages were achieved through further incorporation of adjustable voltage-dependent variables into the reference signals. The dynamic performance of the control approach is demonstrated through simulations and experiments on a laboratory inverter prototype; the results are well presented. Full article
