17Dynamic Modeling of Three-Phase Active Rectifiers

17.1 Introduction

This chapter provides an introduction to modeling of active rectifiers. Further analysis such as control design and derivation of closed-loop models [1–7] is beyond the scope of the book because the active rectifier is a perfect topic for self-studies and provides a good basis for homework topics for students at university-level courses. Moreover, a grid-connected active rectifier serves as a good platform for implementing laboratory assignments, since one does not require expensive grid of PV emulators.

17.2 Open-Loop Dynamics

Active rectifiers are commonly found in motor drive applications. They have been used to replace the three-phase diode bridge enabling significantly ...
