Our goal of the project is to analyze the current and voltage control techniques of the inverter and design an SDI using Predictive Functional Control (PFC). Since PFC uses the sequential approach, it could be very efficiently used with a microcontroller and could be future of SDIs (Software Defined Inverters).
PI controllers are often used to control the current and voltages in a voltage oriented control of a voltage source converter. For tuning PI controllers, there exist several methods e.g Internal model control and symmetrical optimum are the state of the art. Aside from these parameterization methods there exist that has an ability of constraints handling, use of predictions and can provide much ease in implementation is called PFC.
We already have simulated a grid-connected voltage oriented control PFC based inverter and the results are quite unique in comparison with other control techniques.We have attached the PLECS simulation files and a brief report to conclude our findings. Now with the help of two TAPAS boards and an inverter we would like to put our simulation and results into the shape of the real hardware.
We are a group of two Electrical Engineers Ghufran Khan and Adeel Shahid.
this idea will get two TAPAS dev kits
