Abstract

In this paper a regenerative three phase AC to DC PWM converter based on modular multilevel converter (MMC) topology is presented. Single space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) based switching algorithm is used. A rotating d-q reference frame based closed loop vector control algorithm is used for the control of the converter to achieve unity power factor. Sorting algorithm is applied to balance the submodule capacitor voltages. Unlike 2-SVPWM algorithm, in single SVPWM the lower arm switching states are always complimentary of upper arm switching vectors. This results in low circulating current and does not require additional circulating current control loop. The above single -SVPWM algorithm for the AC to DC converter is verified through simulation. The simulation results are presented.
