3 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Introduction New power quality standards for distributed power generation (IEEE 1547 and IEC 61727) calls for better current control Packaging and cost issues leads to the choice of small grid inductors Inductors are often working near to saturation In case of saturation the predicted behaviour of current controllers is not valid anymore single-phase distributed generation PV system with non-linear filtering inductance

4 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre  In Europe there is the standard IEC  In US there is the recommendation IEEE 929  the recommendation IEEE 1547 is valid for all distributed resources technologies with aggregate capacity of 10 MVA or less at the point of common coupling interconnected with electrical power systems at typical primary and/or secondary distribution voltages  All of them impose the following conditions regarding grid current harmonic content  The total THD of the grid current should not be higher than 5% Introduction: harmonic limits for PV inverters

5 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre  In Europe the standard recommends to apply the standard valid for polluting loads requiring the current THD smaller than 6-8 % depending on the type of network.  in WT systems asynchronous and synchronous generators directly connected to the grid have no limitations respect to current harmonics  in case of several WT systems Introduction: harmonic limits for WT inverters

6 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre The decomposition of signals into harmonics with the aim of monitor and control them is a matter of interest for various electric and electronic systems There have been many efforts to scientifically approach typical problems (e.g. faults, unbalance, low frequency EMI) in power systems (power generation, conversion and transmission) through the harmonic analysis The use of Multiple Synchronous Reference Frames (MSRFs), early proposed for the study of induction machines, allows compensating selected harmonic components in case of two-phase motors, unbalance machines or in grid connected systems Harmonic compensation

7 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre The harmonic components of power signals can be represented in stationary or synchronous frames using phasors In case of synchronous reference frames each harmonic component is transformed into a dc component (frequency shifting) If other harmonics are contained in the input signal, the dc output will be disturbed by a ripple that can be easily filtered out.

8 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre two controllers should be implemented in two frames rotating at -5  and 7  or nested frames can be used i.e. implementing in the main synchronous frame two controllers in two frames rotating at 6  and -6   Both solutions are equivalent also in terms of implementation burden because in both the cases two controllers are needed Harmonic compensation by means of synchronous dq-frames

9 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Harmonic compensation by means of stationary  -frame Besides single frequency compensation (obtained with the generalized integrator tuned at the grid frequency), selective harmonic compensation can also be achieved by cascading several resonant blocks tuned to resonate at the desired low-order harmonic frequencies to be compensated. As an example, the transfer functions of a non-ideal harmonic compensator (HC) designed to compensate for the 3rd, 5th and 7th harmonics is reported

The change consists in the appearance of gain peaks at the harmonic frequencies, but what is interesting to notice is that the dynamics of the controller, in terms of bandwidth and stability margin remains unaltered.

23 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Resonant and Repetitive Controllers Open-loop Bode plot of the system with the proposed current controllers: (a) resonant controller; (b) FIR repetitive- based controller. The difference between resonant and repetitive controllers in normal conditions (linear behaviour of the inductor) is very small (0.9 % in terms of THD). The use of DFT with the running window gives a small advantage to the repetitive controller. The repetitive controller exhibits better performances than the resonant one in the rejection of the fifth and the seventh harmonics

24 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Average inductor model The describing function method has been widely used to determine the dynamic behaviour of nonlinear systems. The describing functions method can be used to linearise the nonlinear characteristic of the inductor and estimate the average inductance value where the interval of integration T can be chosen to be one period of the ac input current and δ is the portion of fundamental period (expressed in p.u.) for which the inductance has value L sat REF S.C.

26 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Piecewise linearizated inductor model A time-variant current dependent model can be developed on the basis of the piecewise linearization. Two different cases of nonlinearities are considered: the saturation of the inductor, which occurs for high values of current, and a light nonlinearity of the first portion of the magnetization curve which occurs for very low value of current.

28 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre is the first order response of the inductor which describes the behaviour in the linear case Volterra-series expansion inductor model The frequency behaviour of the non-linear inductance can be studied splitting the model in a linear part and a non-linear part in accordance with the Volterra theory. The Volterra-series expansion of the flux is is the non-linear response of the inductor obtained using an appropriate excitation which is function of the lower order excitation

29 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre implementation of the non-linear inductance model The Volterra model allows calculating harmonics which are introduced in the systems as effect of the filter inductance saturation These harmonics can be modelled as external disturbances, hence they can be compensated by the resonant and repetitive controllers similarly to grid voltage harmonics This explains theoretically the effectiveness of the resonant and repetitive controllers in case of non-linear inductance Volterra-series expansion inductor model

44 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Experimental results The repetitive controller exhibits better performances than the resonant controller in the rejection of the 5th and the 7th harmonic When the system is supplied with a distorted grid voltage, intermodulation harmonics are caused by the inductor saturation, hence the repetitive controller can mitigate also the 9th, 11th, 13th harmonics (caused by intermodulation between the 1st and the 5th and between the 1st and the 7th)

45 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Resonant and repetitive controllers have been tested in case of a non-linear plant Conclusions A current-dependent model of the non-linear inductance has been developed using the Volterra series expansions The repetitive controller is able to comply with the harmonic limits reported in IEEE 1547 and IEC even in very hard saturation conditions The proposed controllers are able: to compensate grid voltage harmonics to compensate odd harmonics caused by plant non-linearity The effects of non-linear inductance on the performance of current controllers have been investigated with a frequency-domain model The model allows proving how harmonic compensation provided by resonant and repetitive controllers can also mitigate the effects of the inductance saturation.

46 Harmonic rejection strategies for grid converters Marco Liserre Conclusions In case of high-current saturation, the repetitive controller exhibits better performances in fact it reduces the fifth and the seventh harmonics more than the resonant one. For this reason the repetitive controller provides better performances also in correspondence to the ninth, the eleventh and the thirteenth harmonics since these harmonics are created as a consequence of the intermodulation effect between the first and the fifth harmonics and between the first and the seventh harmonics. The repetitive controller is able to comply with the harmonic limits reported in IEEE 1547 and IEC even in very hard saturation conditions.
