Abstract

The use of power converter is becoming very popular nowadays to maximize the power extraction from wind as well as interfacing the wind generator with the power grid. LCL filter plays an important role for interconnecting the inverter to the utility grid. Although several researchers designed LCL filtering based inverters, it has been still lacking in the literature a consisted and systematic design methodology that considers statespace mathematical models for delta and wye connected capacitors, considering grounding options and related harmonics mitigation. This paper discusses a comprehensive design of the output LCL filter for the grid-interconnected inverters used in small scale wind energy conversion system, with a practical industrial point of view. The proposed design methodology can also be used in medium and large scale grid connected wind and photovoltaic systems. This paper has practical applicability by describing all the procedural methodology and analysis in how to design LCL filters supported by an in-depth simulation study.
