Linear operating region of a single- phase BTB converter to bidirectional power transfer

Abstract

Single phase back to back (SPBTB) converter is widely used for power transfer in order to increase the performance of electrical power systems; however to take advantage of a SPBTB response it is necessary to avoid over-modulation conditions. This paper deals with an analytical procedure to obtain a SPBTB operating region to guarantee power transfer of each one of the converters of a SPBTB without over-modulation. On the other hand, it is required to know the capacity of the energy store element; in this work, considering a dc link voltage ripple, a capacitor value is calculated in order to allow the adequate power management. Graphics simulations and experimental results are presented to demonstrate the analysis validity.
