A Unified Active Damping for Grid and Converter Current Feedback in Active Front End Converters

Project Code :TEPGPE197


The main objective of this project is to reduce the switching harmonics and improve the system performance.


This paper presents a novel active damping approach that is universally applicable to all active front end converters regardless of whether the current sensor is placed on the grid side or the converter side. At the heart of the proposed approach is a practically implementable fourth-order filter that dampens the resonance whilst being capable of mitigating the challenges associated with both grid current feedback and converter current feedback. The proposed active damping is thoroughly investigated in terms of practical implementation issues such as different LCL filter parameters, different sampling methods, grid impedance, and digital delay. The approach is experimentally validated on motor drives consisting of 2 two-level three-phase converters interfaced with a dSPACE rapid control prototyping system across a wide range of resonant frequencies and PWM sampling methods. In proposed method executed by MATLAB Simulink software.  

Keywords: Active front end converter, active damping, digital delay, discrete system, stability analysis, resonance damping, current control, LCL filter.
