Abstract

An alternative approach to DC link capacitance reduction and ripple suppression of grid-connected converters was recently suggested. Instead of regulating the DC link current, the proposed system gains control over the ripple by replacing the grid-interfacing converter in the task of regulating the DC link voltage. This allows increasing the voltage control bandwidth (thus reducing the ripple) without sacrificing the input power factor. In this paper, a PI in conjunction with Multi-resonant voltage controller is introduced, allowing complete elimination the DC link voltage ripple thus realizing a virtual infinite capacitance.
