Abstract

This paper presents a step by step design procedure for the input filter of a current source inverter (CSI). The design is also applicable to matrix converters. The design is based on the specifications of allowable ripple in the input voltage of the CSI and high frequency harmonic components in input grid current. Analytical techniques have been developed to estimate the ripple present in the input current and to model the converter for fundamental or grid frequency. This is essential for the analysis of input filter. The analysis and design of the input filter have been verified by simulation in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment.
