In recent years, the Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) has gained a lot of interest in industry due to its modularity and scalability for different power and voltage levels. However, the control of a MMC consisting of several submodules is often implemented in a central control system, so that the whole MMC system cannot be considered as modular. The thought to distribute control tasks to each submodule arises. Therefore, high speed serial communication protocols such as EtherCAT and CAN have… CONTINUE READING
