Abstract

Multilevel Static Compensators (StatComs) offer significant advantages over traditional two level converter based StatComs. The cascaded H-bridge topology for multilevel StatComs is increasing becoming the topology of choice. This paper will address the problem of compensating for the non-ideal nature of the H-bridges so that accurate current control can be achieved with this topology using a predictive current controller.
