Use of asymmetrical currents waveforms to detect and localize open switch faults for two level voltage source inverter three-phase shunt active power filter. (English) Zbl 1270.93080
Summary: This paper proposes an open switch faults detection and localization algorithm for shunt three phase active filter topology. It mainly details converter configuration and examines a simple and reliable optimized fault diagnosis method. The converter topology is based on classical three-leg active power filter topology. A new fault diagnosis method is proposed, based on classical currents measurements. It includes combinatory logic to analyze and validate error signals. Hysteresis control is applied before and after fault detection, which avoids any controller reconfiguration. Simulation results obtained with Matlab/Simulink/Plecs tools prove the effectiveness of this method.
