Abstract

This paper presents a direct model predictive power control for a series-connected modular rectifier. The topology combines a diode rectifier and an active-front-end (AFE) converter to achieve a medium voltage target. A voltage control loop regulates the total dc voltage, providing the power references to the inner direct model predictive control. Operation under the desired real and reactive power is achieved, while minimizing the converter switching frequency. Moreover, successful operation and control of the AFE converter is guaranteed thanks to a hard constraint included in the optimization problem.
