Control strategy for Single-phase Transformerless Three-leg Unified Power Quality Conditioner Based on Space Vector Modulation

Control strategy for Single-phase Transformerless Three-leg Unified Power Quality Conditioner Based on Space Vector Modulation

Abstract:

The unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) is known as an effective compensation device to improve power quality for sensitive end-users. This paper investigates the operation and control of singlephase threeleg UPQC (TL-UPQC), where a novel space vector modulation method is proposed for naturally solving the coupling problem introduced by the common switching leg. The modulation method is similar to the well-known space vector modulation widely used with threephase voltage source converters, which thus brings extra flexibility to the TL-UPQC system. Two optimized modulation modes with either reduced switching loss or harmonic distortion are derived, evaluated and discussed, in order to demonstrate the flexibility brought by the space vector modulated TL-UPQC. Simulations and experimental results are presented to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed space vector modulation approach as well as two mentioned modulation modes.
