|Title:||PERFORMANCE INVESTIGATION OF SINGLE PHASE MULTILEVEL RECTIFIER|
|Keywords:||ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING;SINGLE PHASE MULTILEVEL RECTIFIER;PWM SCHEME;XILINX SYSTEM GENERATOR TOOL KIT|
|Abstract:||Researchers have always been improving the technology when it comes to the power quality improvement. Many converter topologies have been discovered in last 25 years and the research is still on in this area. Years back in around 1975, multilevel converters came into existence which completely changed the whole scenario of converter fed induction motors and many other power electronic applications. This work starts with the comparison of multilevel rectifiers with other traditional converter topologies showing their edge over others. Different control strategies are discussed. In this dissertation work, basically different rectifier topologies are compared on the basis of their simulation results. The control strategy used here is mainly PWM scheme with hysteresis current control. MATLAB simulations are carried out for R and RL loads for different topologies with PWM scheme. The hardware has been implemented for just one topology in the laboratory. SPARTAN 3 FPGA kit has been used for the digital control and the VHDL code for the control strategy is been generated by using Xilinx System Generator tool kit.|
