An Improved Modulated Carrier Control with On-Time Doubler for Single-Phase Shunt Active Power Filter

ABSTRACT

This paper planned an enhanced modulated carrier control with on-time doubler for the single-phase shunt active power filter, which remove harmonic and reactive currents drawn by nonlinear loads. This control method directly shapes the line current to be sinusoidal and in phase with the grid voltage by produce a modulated carrier signal

DC -OFFSET

with a resettable integrator comparing the carrier signal to the average line current and making duty ratio doubled. Since the line current compared to the carrier signal is not the peak, but the average value

HARMONIC

dc-offset appeared at the conventional control methods based on one-cycle control is efficiently addressed. The planned control method destroy the harmonic and reactive currents and solves the dc-offset problem.

SINGLE PHASE

The operation principle and stability singular of the single-phase shunt active power filter with the planned control method are discussed, and experimental results with laboratory prototype under various load conditions verify its work.

CONCLUSION

An enhanced modulated carrier control for single-phase active power filter has been planned. The shunt APF with the planned control method fulfills harmonic and reactive current remove at the line current by comparing the carrier signal to the average line current and having the duty ratio doubled.

CONVENTIONAL

On top of that, the control method totally gets rid of the dc-offset problem arisen at the conventional one based on one-cycle control and make the current control loop stability without additional ramp signal. The operation principle of power stage

the main control mechanism, and the stability singular of the current control loop are consider in detail.Experimental results with the shunt APF system under various conditions verify the work of the planned control method in steady and transient states.
