Improving the Dynamics of Lagrange-based MMC Controllers by means of Adaptive Filters for Single-Phase Voltage, Power and Energy Estimation

Abstract : A generalized and versatile approach for control of the circulating currents of Modular Multilevel Converters (MMC) has been recently proposed by using Lagrange Multipliers in the ABC frame. This approach is capable of analytically obtaining the differential current references associated with the desired operating conditions imposed to the optimization procedure. Previous implementations of this control approach have been sensitive to harmonic distortion of the control signals when applied to systems with a low number of levels, and have depended on average value calculations of sinusoidal variables, slowing down the dynamics of the control and making the tuning of the control system difficult under certain conditions. This work demonstrates that the performance of the versatile Lagrange-based control can be improved by introducing adaptive filtering based on Second Order Generalized Integrators (SOGIs) for processing the system variables needed for calculating the circulating current references. In addition to improved control dynamics and easier tuning of system controllers, the use of the adaptive filters provides inherent capability for operation under frequency variations, and is therefore suitable for control of MMCs operating in weak grids as well as for high- or medium-voltage motor drives.
