This paper shows a configuration and control method of cascade H-bridge STATCOM in three phase power system. The phase cluster of STATCOM consists of three H-bridge cells connected in series. The feature is that each H-bridge cell generates a different output voltage Vc, 2Vc, 4Vc. By this configuration, each phase cluster can generate 17-level output voltage. But, as well as the other cascade H-bridge multilevel converter, every H-bridge cell has isolated DC capacitor, and balancing problem of… CONTINUE READING
