Modeling of Power Electronics Distribution Systems with Low-frequency, Large-signal (LFLS) Models

This work also presents one of the new models in detail, a voltage source inverter (VSI), and explains how the model can be modified to capture low frequency harmonics that are usually phenomena modeled only with switching models. The process of implementing these different phenomena is discussed and the model is then validated by comparing the results of the proposed low frequency large signal (LFLS) model to a complete detailed switching model. In addition, experimental results are also obtained with a 2 kW voltage source inverter prototype to validate the proposed improved average model (LFLS model). In addition, a complete Verification, Validation, and Uncertainty Quantification (VV&UQ) procedures is applied to a two-level boost rectifier. The goal of this validation process is the improvement of the modeling procedure for power electronics systems, and the full assessment of the boost rectifier model predictive capabilities. Finally, the performance of the new models system is compared with the detailed switching models system. The LFLS models result in huge cut in simulation time (about 10 times difference) and also the ability to use large time step with the LFLS system and still capture all the information needed. Even though this low frequency large signal (LFLS) models system has wider capabilities than ideal average models system, it still canâ t predict all switching phenomena. Therefore, another benefit of this modeling approach is the ability to mix different types of models (low frequency large signal (LFLS) and detailed switching) based on the application study they are used for.
