Open Switch Faults Detection and Localization Algorithm for Three Phases Shunt Active Power Filter based on Two Level Voltage Source Inverter
An open switch faults detection and localization algorithm for shunt three phase active filter topology is proposed. It mainly details converter configuration and examines a simple and reliable optimised fault diagnosis method. The converter topology is based on classical three-leg active power filter topology. A new fault diagnosis method is proposed, based on classical currents measurements. It includes combinatory logic to analyse and validate error signals. A Hysteresis Control is applied before and after fault detection, which avoids any controller reconfiguration. Simulation results obtained with Matlab/Simulink/Plecs tools prove the effectiveness of this method. Ill. 6, bibl. 8 (in English; summaries in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
