Abstract

Decentralised control for parallel inverters connected to the power grid is developed using differential flatness theory and the derivative-free nonlinear Kalman filter. It is proven that the model of the inverters, is a differentially flat one. This means that all its state variables and the control inputs can be written as differential functions of a single algebraic variable which is the flat output. By exploiting differential flatness properties it is shown that the multiple inverters model can be transformed into a set of local inverter models which are decoupled and linearized. For each local inverter the design of a state feedback controller becomes possible. Such a controller processes measurements not only coming from the individual inverter but also coming from other inverters which are connected to the grid. Moreover, to estimate the non-measurable state variables of each local inverter, the derivative-free nonlinear Kalman filter is used. Furthermore, by redesigning the aforementioned filter as a disturbance observer it becomes also possible to estimate and compensate for disturbance terms that affect each local inverter.
