120kVA Three-Phase Grid-tied Inverter with Active Controlled Parallel SiC MOSFETs (24-01)

Principal Investigator: Dr. Alan Mantooth

In this project, a 120kVA three-phase grid-tied inverter with parallel SiC MOSFETs will be designed. This project targets operation at an exemplary frequency beyond 50 kHz, and with a robust capacity exceeding 120kVA, while seamlessly integrating active harmonic filter and unbalanced grid compensation functionalities. This design not only safeguards exceptional power quality management, a crucial element in industrial applications, but also ensures steadfast grid stability amid the fluctuating nature of renewable energy sources. With the development of a high-bandwidth current sensor and a robust Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) algorithm, the project confidently provides precise high-frequency feedback and adept tracking of frequency alterations, accordingly. Grounded in the proven outcomes of previous projects and validated by available prototypes, our project envisions a future landscape of power systems that are not only efficient and reliable but also sustainably forward-looking.
