  • Digital control of a three-phase grid connected inverter

    This paper presents the design and practical implementation of a digital current controller for a three-phase PWM voltage source inverter connected to the grid via an LCL filter to produce a high quality current injected into the grid. A two-feedback loops control system is proposed, with an outer grid current loop and an inner filter capacitor current loop. The controller also incorporates a ...

  • Modelling of three-phase grid-connected inverters

    Grid-connected inverters are key elements that interface the distributed energy sources with the grid. In this paper, a graphic modelling method based on switching flow graph is presented for modelling inverters, with a one-cycle controlled inverter as an example. This method features great simplicity and accuracy, and is compatible with dynamic system-simulation software, such as MATLAB. PSPICE ...

  • Grid Connection An open letter to those on grid considering pursuing hydro power

    Many people contact us concerning the possibility of using a power source that is either connected to the commercial power grid or feeding power to a house that is. While this may be possible, it is not likely to make economic sense. Over 99% of our customers are off-grid and there are reasons for this. The question is then more like: ’Can I put in a small hydro system or should I spend ...

  • Controlling the number of on-grid multiple photovoltaic inverters to improve their conversion efficiency

    Two experimental PV-grid connected systems of 8.8 kWp and 36 kWp rating have been designed, installed and interfaced with Abu Dhabi utility grid. The PV arrays of both systems are interfaced with the grid via single phase grid-tied inverters. The inverters are installed in three separate groups that each injects 50 Hz electricity into one phase of the utility grid at the 0.4 kV level. The main ...

  • Modified Sine Wave Inverters vs Pure Sine Wave Inverters

    Most everyday appliances and commercial tools run on AC power. This is fine if you’re connecting the device to a wall outlet that provides AC power. But what if you want to use power from a DC source, like a solar-powered generator or a car battery? In such cases, individuals need to use an inverter – a device that converts DC power to AC power. There are several types of ...
