Abstract

The spread of distributed generation systems has reinforced concerns and requirements on grid-tied power converters. The synchronization with the utility voltage vector is a major concern. In the literature, algorithms based on Phase Locked Loops are extensively presented. In spite of adequate performances under ideal and balanced grid conditions, under grid faults great inaccuracies arise. Shortcomings are overcome by advanced algorithms at the expenses of the complexity and computational cost. In this paper, grid synchronization algorithms are addressed. A solution is proposed by introducing a new post-filter stage in a Decoupled Double Synchronous Reference Frame not affecting, at the same time, the complexity of implementation, the detection time and damping of the conventional DDSRF solution. The post-filtering stage design criteria are described based on a mathematical derivation of the phase error in a conventional DDSRF algorithm under distorted grid utility. A comparison of system performances with the conventional DDSRF algorithm is carried out under distorted, balanced and unbalanced utility conditions, validating the benefits brought by the proposed solution.
