Abstract

This paper proposes a robust adaptive voltage control of three-phase voltage source inverter for a distributed generation system in a standalone operation. First, the state-space model of the load-side inverter, which considers the uncertainties of system parameters, is established. The proposed adaptive voltage control technique combines an adaption control term and a state feedback control term. The former compensates for system uncertainties, while the latter forces the error dynamics to converge to zero. In addition, the proposed algorithm is easy to implement, but it is very robust to system uncertainties and sudden load disturbances. In this paper, a stability analysis is also carried out to show the robustness of the closed-loop control system. The proposed control strategy guarantees excellent voltage regulation performance (i.e., fast transient response, zero steady-state error, and low THD) under various types of loads such as balanced load, unbalanced load, and nonlinear load. The simulation and experimental results are presented under the parameter uncertainties and are compared to the performances of the corresponding nonadaptive voltage controller to validate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme.
