High power grid-connected PV PCS with power quality improvement and stand-alone operation
GRADUATE SCHOOL SUNGKYUNKWAN UNIVERSITY PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM ENGINEERING
With the increase of power consumption, the limitation of fossil fuel and global warming, as power generation systems become superannuated, every country has faced several sorts of energy problems. Moreover, since power consumption has increased, not only reserve margin is decreased but also more power plants are required. However, the construction of power plants is restricted since those power facilities are closely related with environmental problems. Consequently, since the use of sensitive loads such as the latest IT products is increased, power quality issue is being magnified as a new controversy. In this research, the power quality improvement function applied to three-phase four-wire H-bridge type photovoltaic power generation system is proposed. When the photovoltaic power generation system is operated in grid-connected mode, grid current distorted by unbalanced load is improved, and the system is operated in stand-alone mode during power failure. Moreover, when the amount of solar radiation is low such as night time, the system is operated as a active power filter and improve the performance of the photovoltaic power generation system. The series dual loop with quasi-resonant proportional controller and 2ndorder deadbeat controller is applied to the system as a controller. Single phase PLL with phase synchronizing function, Goertzel stand-alone detection function with minimized non-detection area and Goertzel power quality control function are proposed. In order to verify the validity of the system performance, simulation and experiment with 100kw H-bridge type three-phase inverter are progressed.
