Abstract

This paper presents a fast and robust control system for a three-phase quasi-Z-source inverter (qZSI) connected to the grid. The topology combines two quasi-Z-source networks with a T-type inverter allowing to obtain AC voltages with multilevel characteristics and properties of the referred networks. To control this system a closed-loop current controller for the AC currents is proposed. The controller is based on a vectorial modulator associated to the shoot-through states. The DC-link voltage is maintained stable at the reference value by adjusting the shoot-through duty cycle. The controller is characterized by fast transient response and robustness to parameter and load variations. In order to confirm the desired characteristics and performance of the converter and control system several simulation tests were performed.
