An integrated converter and machine control system for MMC-based high-power drives
The modular multilevel converter (MMC) is a promising topology for high-power drive applications. However, large voltage fluctuations can be produced in the floating capacitors when the machine operates with high stator ...
A novel Capacitor Voltage Balancing strategy for Modular Multilevel Converters
This paper presents a simple and innovative Capacitor Voltage Balancing (CVB) strategy for Modular Multilevel Converters (MMC) based on full H-bridge cell topologies. The method computes specific modulation indexes for ...
Model-predictive-control-based capacitor voltage balancing strategies for modular multilevel converters
This paper presents two capacitor voltage balancing (CVB) strategies for modular multilevel converter (MMC) applications. Both balancing schemes are based on model predictive control and are designed to efficiently solve ...
