Abstract

In this paper, a new cascaded nonlinear controller has been designed and implemented on the packed U-cell (PUC) seven-level inverter. The proposed controller has been designed based on a simplified model of PUC inverter and consists of a voltage controller as an outer loop and a current controller as an inner loop. The outer loop regulates the PUC inverter capacitor voltage as the second dc bus. The inner loop is in charge of controlling the flowing current, which is also used to charge and discharge that capacitor. The main goal of the whole system is to keep the dc capacitor voltage at a certain level results in generating a smooth and quasi-sine-wave seven-level voltage waveform at the output of the inverter with low switching frequency. The proposed controller performance is verified through experimental tests. Practical results prove the good dynamic performance of the controller in fixing the PUC capacitor voltage for various and variable load conditions and yet generating low-harmonic seven-level voltage waveform to deliver power to the loads. Operation as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or ac loads interface for photovoltaic energy conversion applications is targeted.
