Design of robust current tracking control for active power filters

By Y. Wu, N. Schofield, Chris Bingham, D. Howe and D. A. Stone


The paper describes a design methodology for robust current-tracking control of active power filters using quantitative feedback theory (QFT). The design aim is to address system issues of power quality and power factor correction in a double-sided converter (rectifierhverter combination) subject to parametric uncertainty, non-linear dynamic behavior and exogenous disturbances. The paper includes simulation results to demonstrate the dynamic performance attributes afforded to the resulting closed-loop control system, and to verify the design procedure
