Resonant Current Control Of Three Phase Grid Connected Photovoltaic Inverters

V. Pranay Kumar, M.M. Irfan


This paper presents a new control technique used to reduce the harmonic distortion of current, without increasing the computational load of the standard current control abnormal conditions. The proposed control technique overcomes the disadvantages of resonant current control under unbalanced conditions. Simulations results of the proposed control technique are carried out and showed better performance.
