Lcl filter design

  1. 1. 1 School of Engineering & Applied Sciences, Frederick University Nicosia, Cyprus August, 2015
  2. 2. 2  An LCL filter is often used to interconnect an inverter to the utility grid in order to filter the harmonics produced by the inverter.  So far, there is lack of a state-space mathematical modeling approach that considers practical cases of delta- and wye-connected capacitors  This paper describes a design methodology of an LCL filter for grid- interconnected inverters along with a comprehensive study of how to mitigate harmonics.
  3. 3. 3  Simple type of filter that can be used is a series inductor,  but its harmonic attenuation is not very pronounced  High voltage drop is produced, hence the size of inductor becomes bulky.  High Order LCL Filter is used as replacement of conventional L filter for smoothing output current of VSC  Higher attenuation along with cost savings,  overall weight and size reduction of the components.  Good performance can be obtained using small values of inductors and capacitors.
  4. 4. 4  Little information available describing the systematic design of LCL filters  In order to design an effective LCL filter, it is necessary to have an appropriate mathematical model of the filter.  The objective of this paper is to conduct a comprehensive analysis and modeling of the three-phase LCL filter for VSC converters, suitable for wind energy or photovoltaic applications.  Two configurations of three-phase full-bridge dc/ac inverter are compared:  first, a set of wyeconnected filter capacitors with damping  second, a deltaconnected filter output connection.

  10. 10. 10 LCL frequency response Fig. 4 Bode Diagram 𝐻𝐿𝐶𝐿 = 𝑖 𝑔 𝑣 𝑖 important transfer function The insertion of a series resistance with the capacitor eliminates the gain spike, smoothing the overall response and rolling-off to −180◦ for high frequency, instead of −270◦.
  11. 11. 11 Filter Design procedure  Several characteristics must be considered in designing an LCL filter,  such as current ripple, filter size, and switching ripple attenuation.  The reactive power requirements may cause a resonance of the capacitor interacting with the grid.  Therefore, passive or active damping must be added by including a resistor in series with the capacitor. The following parameters are needed for the filter design:  VLL, line-to-line RMS voltage (inverter output);  Vph, phase voltage (inverter output);  Pn, rated active power;  VDC, dc-link voltage;  fg, grid frequency;  fsw, switching frequency; and  fres, resonance frequency.

  13. 13. 13 Filter Design procedure 𝑍 𝑏 = 𝐸 𝑛 2 𝑃𝑛 Base Impedance 𝐶 𝑏 = 1 𝜔 𝑔 𝑍 𝑏 Base Capacitance For the design of the filter capacitance, it is considered that the maximum power factor variation seen by the grid is 5%, indicating that the base impedance of the system is adjusted as follows: 𝐶𝑓 = 0.05𝐶 𝑏 The maximum current ripple at the output of dc/ac inverter is given by It can be observed that the maximum peak-to-peak current ripple happens at m = 0.5, then 𝐿1= Inverter Side Inductor 𝑉𝐷𝐶= DC Link Voltage 𝐸 𝑛= Line-Line Grid Voltage
  14. 14. 14 Filter Design procedure The LCL filter should reduce the expected current ripple to 20%, resulting in a ripple value of 2% of the output current. A 10% ripple of the rated current (𝐼 𝑚𝑎𝑥) for the design parameters is given by ∆𝐼𝐿𝑚𝑎𝑥 = 0.1𝐼 𝑚𝑎𝑥 Where, 𝐼 𝑚𝑎𝑥 = 𝑃𝑛 2 3𝑉𝑝ℎ Hence, 𝐿1 becomes 𝐿1 = 𝑉𝐷𝐶 (6𝑓𝑠𝑤∆𝐼𝐿𝑚𝑎𝑥)
  15. 15. 15 Filter Design procedure Now harmonic mitigation, the harmonic current generated by inverter to that of current injected in the grid is given by: where 𝑘𝑎 is the desired attenuation. 𝐶𝑓 = 0.01 ÷ 0.05 𝐶 𝑏  A resistor in series (Rf ) with the capacitor attenuates part of the ripple on the switching frequency in order to avoid the resonance.  The value of this resistor should be one third of the impedance of the filter capacitor at the resonant frequency  The constant r is the ratio between the inductance at the inverter side and the one at the grid side
  16. 16. 16 Lcl FILTERDESIGNEXAMPLE The specifications are  𝐸 𝑛 = 120 3, line-to-line RMS voltage;  Ps = Pn = 5 kW, rated active power;  VDC = 400 V, dc-link voltage;  ωg = 2π60, grid angular frequency;  fsw = 15 kHz, switching frequency;  x = 0.05, maximum power factor variation seen by the grid;  ka = 0.2 (20%), attenuation factor. 𝑍 𝑏 = 𝐸 𝑛 2 𝑃𝑛 = (120 3)2 5000 = 8.64ΩBase Impedance 𝐶 𝑏 = 1 𝜔 𝑔 𝑍 𝑏 = 307.16μFBase Capacitance
