A new predictive current control technique for multilevel converters

Zare, Firuz & Ledwich, Gerard F. (2006) A new predictive current control technique for multilevel converters. In TENCON 2006 IEEE Region 10 Conference, 14-17 November, Hong Kong, China.



In this paper, a novel predictive current control technique is proposed for a three-phase multilevel inverter, which controls the capacitors' voltages and load currents with low switching losses. The advantage of this contribution is that the technique can be applied to more voltage levels without significantly changing the control circuit. The three-phase three-level inverter with a pure inductive load has been implemented to track reference currents using analogue circuits and programmable logic device.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
