A Systematic Method for Designing a PR Controller and Active Damping of the LCL Filter for Single-Phase Grid-Connected PV Inverters

ABSTRACT:

The Proportional Resonant (PR) current controller provides gains at a certain frequency (resonant frequency) and eliminates steady state errors. Therefore, the PR controller can be successfully applied to single grid-connected PV inverter current control. On the contrary, a PI controller has steady-state errors and limited disturbance rejection capability. Compared with the L- and LC filters, the LCL filter has excellent harmonic suppression capability, but the inherent resonant peak of the LCL filter may introduce instability in the whole system. Therefore, damping must be introduced to improve the control of the system.

PV INVERTER

Considering the controller and the LCL filter active damping as a whole system makes the controller design method more complex. In fact, their frequency responses may affect each other. The traditional trial-and-error procedure is too time-consuming and the design process is inefficient. This paper provides a detailed analysis of the frequency response influence between the PR controller and the LCL filter regarded as a whole system.

LCL FILTER

In addition, the paper presents a systematic method for designing controller parameters and the capacitor current feedback coefficient factor of LCL filter active-damping. The new method relies on meeting the stable margins of the system. Moreover, the paper also clarifies the impact of the grid on the inverter output current. Numerical simulation and a 3 kW laboratory setup assessed the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method.

CONCLUSION:

The stability analysis of the system composed by a PR controller and an LCL filter together is not easy: the frequency responses may affect each other and the PR controller design becomes complex. The traditional method based on trial-and-error procedures, is too time-consuming, and the design process is inefficient. This paper provides a detailed analysis of the frequency response influence between the PR controller and the LCL filter.

PR CONTROLLER

In addition, the paper presents a systematic design method for the PR controller parameters and the capacitor current feedback coefficient, used in the active damping of the LCL filter. Using the new parameters, a numerical simulation shows that the system meets the requirements of stable margins and current tracking steady-state error. The robustness of the current controller is verified through several experimental tests carried out on a 3 kW platform varying the system parameters.

INDUCTOR

The Bode diagrams of the system varying inductor, capacitor, and grid impedance values confirmed that the controller parameters enhance robustness against the system parameters variation. Moreover, the system remains stable even in case of grid voltage fluctuation. Both the simulation and the experimental results assess the validity of the proposed design method.

Single-Stage Buck-Derived LED Driver With Improved Efficiency and Power Factor Using Current Path Control Switches

ABSTRACT:

This paper proposes a single-stage light-emitting diode (LED) driver based on an inverted buck topology, using current path control switches. The proposed circuit consists of a control circuit, a bridge diode, and an inverted buck converter with multiple switches connected to the LED section in parallel. Whereas the typical buck LED driver operates with a fixed LED forward voltage, the proposed driver operates with a variable LED forward voltage, according to the input voltage level. Because of this power to adjust the LED forward voltage, it can reduce the current ripple and the switching frequency with a small inductance value.

In addition, it enables operation with LED lamps of a wide voltage range, while together achieving small dead-angles. The detailed operation principles are described, and the design considerations for the proposed driver are discussed. The proposed driver circuit and control operation are verified experimentally using a 7 W hardware prototype with four LED section. The get experimental results show that, under a 110 Vrms input voltage, the proposed driver produce a power factor of 0.94 with a small dead-angle and an efficiency of 94 %.

 CONCLUSION:

This paper proposed a novel approach of utilising a New Hybrid Technique approach to solve the MPPT problem in microgrid consisting of PV-Hydro Diesel cell connected to a grid using three phase inverter. The solar cell model was designed and given to boost converter. The converter output was analysed. An incremental conductance technique was also implemented for comparison purpose. The result of hybrid model was found to be quite better than the incremental conductance technique in terms of output voltage magnitude and THD content.

The THD content reduces using our proposed approach. Also when the current is compared, the oscillations die out very fast in case of hybrid model while in I&C approach it is more or less sustained. In future this algorithm can be improved using other techniques and approaches. Also real time implementation of the algorithms can be done and hardware testing can be done. Hybrid with other algorithms can be utilised and the performances can be compared. Also clustering and other gradient learning methods can be utilised and the model can be tested for grid connection.
