Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The three-phase, three-wire, five-level cascaded Inverter is used as a medium-voltage shunt active power filter. The capacitor voltage-control technique used as a harmonic current extraction method for the two-level inverter is extended to the five-level shunt active power filter, with a technique proposed for balancing capacitor voltages. Predictive current control based on the supply current (not the active filter current) is employed. Two different space vector modulation (SVM) techniques viz., phase-shifted SVM and hybrid SVM, are used for multilevel inverter pulsewidth-modulation generation. The proposed five-level shunt active power filter is validated by simulation and practically for both modulation techniques. The proposed technique results in the same software and hardware requirements for any m-level inverter.
