Abstract

More "green" power provided by Distributed Generation will enter into the European electricity network in the near future. In order to control the power flow and to ensure proper and secure operation of this future grid, with an increased level of the renewable power, new power electronic converters for grid connection of renewable sources will be needed. These power converters must be able to provide intelligent power management as well as ancillary services. This paper assesses a control method based on the stationary reference frame with Proportional-Resonant current controllers for a multi-level cascaded H-bridges power converter used for grid applications. Harmonic content in the Point of Common Coupling, system response for bidirectional power flow, voltage and frequency excursions as well as voltage unbalances and asymmetries and low voltage ride-though capabilities are studied.
