Abstract

The paper introduces the family of quasi-direct converters, i.e., forced-commutated AC/DC/AC power converters including small energy storage devices in the DC link. In particular, the case of the three-phase to three-phase quasi-direct power converter is considered. Since energy storage minimization calls for instantaneous input/output power balance, a proper control strategy is needed. The paper describes a simple and effective control technique which also provides high-power factor and small distortion of the supply currents. After a discussion of the general properties of quasi-direct power converters, design criteria of both power and control sections are given, and experimental results of a 2-kVA prototype are reported
