Abstract

This paper presents a simulation modeling for hardware development of three-phase inverter using dSPACE DS1104 controller board for photovoltaic application. The controller acquired the advantage of linking the simulated model in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment to a prototype. It generates the pulse-width modulation signals for the switching of the power switches, the insulated gate bipolar transistors with the accomplishment of proportional integral controller and Park transformation. The controller managed to stabilize 50 Hz sinusoidal ac output voltage of the inverter. The simulation was carried out with the application of a photovoltaic generator to facilitate the real photovoltaic dc input power to the inverter. With the excellent simulation results of 0.75% in the total harmonic distortion of the inverter output voltage, it suggests that the developed control system exhibits a good performance. Thus, it justified that the develop control strategy can be translated into the inverter prototype by utilizing the dSPACE platform.
