Titel: Predictive Current Control

Abstract: Predictive Current Control – When to use?

Switching losses contribute the major portion to the total losses in medium voltage drives. Operation at extremely low switching frequency is therefore mandatory. Low harmonic current distortion can be nevertheless maintained when predictive current control is used.

Predictive current control is currently attracting the interest of many researchers. Even specific conferences are being organized on this novel topic. The predictive algorithm directly generates the firing pulses of the inverter, thus eliminating a pulsewidth modulator. A preset magnitude of the current error is permitted, defined as the magnitude difference between reference and actual current space vectors. Inverter gate pulses are generated such as to maximize the time differences between any two switching instants. This minimizes the switching frequency, and thus the switching losses. Harmonic current distortion is held at a predetemined value.

A gate pulse is generated whenever a predefined current error is exceeded. That error is computed as the difference between reference and actual current space vector. The next switching state is then determined such that maximum time elapses until the error vector exceeds its limit again. This minimizes the switching frequency and also the switching losses. Overmodulation and a smooth transition to full-wave operation produces maximum inverter output voltage. The error vector is represented here in a rotor field oriented coordinate system and different error magnitudes are permitted in the respective axes.
