AC/DC Grid Interface Based on the Three-Phase Voltage Source Converter

13.1    PARTICULARITIES—CONTROL OBJECTIVES—ACTIVE POWER CONTROL

As energy is mostly transported on AC lines, electronic circuits able to convert AC to DC voltages have been the first application ever for power semiconductor devices [1,2,3,4,5,6]. The diode rectifier is the simplest power converter grid interface (Figure 13.1). At larger power levels, energy is transported and distributed within three-phase systems, and conversion from three-phase AC to DC voltage is used. All design aspects of diode rectifiers are thoroughly presented in university textbooks for power electronics and will not be reproduced here. However, Table 13.1 reviews the possible diode rectifier ...
