Abstract

This paper discusses a Model Predictive Control (MPC) scheme for a Voltage Source Converter (VSC) where the aim is to minimize losses and Total Harmonics distortion (THD) compared to the conventional MPC scheme. Different Cost Functions (CFs) are applied to the stand-alone VSC. A comparison between conventional and improved controller is conducted in terms of losses. The switching and conduction losses for the VSC are calculated using MATLAB/SIMULINK and PLECS software. A power level up to 1 kW is considered for the conventional and the improved schemes. All simulation and experimental results are conducted using the SEMIKRON SKM 50GB 123D as the power module.
