The advancements of Multilevel Converter technology
have brought the beginning of a new era
in the FACTs industry and the Modular Multilevel
Converter has received the attention of researchers
in the last decade. The present Thesis
focuses on the development of an advanced
control system of a Modular Multilevel Converter
aimed for a STATCOM application. The
performance of the proposed control scheme
under internal and external unbalances is evaluated
via extensive simulations combined with
experimental sessions. Finally, an enhanced
control system is employed for the effective mitigation
of current harmonics, with the STATCOM
acting as an active filter.
