BERZOV, Alberto; VIOLA, Julio  e  RESTREPO, José. Voltage space vector's computation for current control in three phase converters. Antioquia [online]. 2012, n.64, pp.45-56. ISSN 0120-6230.

This work presents two current loop techniques, for three phase voltage source converters (VSC) used as controlled rectifiers (CR) operating at unity power factor. The first one is based on choosing the best natural vector, among the natural space vectors produced by two level voltage source inverters, with the use of a cost function. The second one is based on computing and synthesizing a space vector such that an absolute minimum in the cost function is obtained. The first algorithm is a simple method that presents power factor correction and good total harmonic distortion compensation. The second algorithm provides a novel and closed form formula to calculate the optimum voltage vector applied by the converter. In this method, pulse width modulation (PWM) is required to modulate the voltage vector that controls directly the line current, to follow the current reference. The simulations and experimental results show the advantages of the proposed control algorithm.
