Abstract

Hybrid switching control-based direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) inverter is a method of controlling the flow of power from DC sources such as solar panels or wind turbines to AC loads in a microgrid. In a microgrid, renewable energy sources are often used to supplement traditional sources of energy and improve overall energy efficiency. To simulate micro-grid systems, an effective three-legged IGBT inverter has been developed using Matlab R2016a/Simulink. The inverter switches are controlled by a pulse controller, which creates the switching gate pulses. This work models the output voltage and current waveforms of the three-phase 180° voltage source inverter that supplies nonlinear loads. To lower the total harmonic distortion (THD) of the current and voltage outputs of the three-phase voltage source converter (VSC), a filter circuit and a two-level pulse width modulation (PWM) generator have been presented. This pulse-width modulation generator compares the modulating signal and a high-frequency triangular carrier wave. Sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) is used for PWM control. Moreover, the hybrid switching control-based DC-to-AC inverter utilizes a combination of pulse width modulation (PWM) and hysteresis current control techniques to maintain a constant AC output voltage and frequency. PWM control is used to regulate the voltage, while hysteresis current control is used to regulate the current. Additionally, an inductor-capacitor-inductor (LCL) filter is used to improve the stability of the power converter by providing a damping effect on the system. Overall, the LCL filter is a versatile and effective tool for improving the performance of power inverters, especially in applications where high efficiency and low harmonic distortion are important.
