Model predictive control (MPC) has a number of desirable attributes which are difficult to achieve with classical converter control techniques. Unfortunately, the nature of power electronics imposes restriction to the method, as a result of the limited number of available converter states. This, combined with the spread spectrum nature of harmonics inherent with the strategy, complicates further design.

The method, named modulated MPC, is applied to a two-level three-phase converter and compared with a number of similar approaches.

Abstract

Model predictive control (MPC) has a number of desirable attributes which are difficult to achieve with classical converter control techniques. Unfortunately, the nature of power electronics imposes restriction to the method, as a result of the limited number of available converter states. This, combined with the spread spectrum nature of harmonics inherent with the strategy, complicates further design. This paper presents a method for removing this characteristic without compromising the desirable functionality of predictive control. The method, named modulated MPC, is applied to a two-level three-phase converter and compared with a number of similar approaches. Experimental results are used to support theoretical analysis and simulation studies.
