Abstract

This paper presents a multi-objective Model Predictive Control (MPC) for grid-tied 4-cell 15-level Packed U Cells (PUC) inverter. This challenging topology is characterized by high power quality with reduced number of components compared to conventional multilevel inverters. Compared to traditional PI controller, MPC is attracting more interest due to its good dynamic response and high accuracy of reference tracking, through the minimization of a flexible user-defined cost function. For the presented PUC topology, the grid current should be jointly controlled with the capacitors' voltages for ensuring proper operation of the inverter, which leads to an additional requirement of pre-charge circuits for the capacitors in case of using PI current controller (or using additional PI controllers). The proposed MPC achieves grid current injection, low current THD, unity PF, while balancing the capacitors' voltages.
