AbstractThe power balancing mechanism and the effective voltage balancing control algorithm are presented for the single-phase cascaded H-bridge multilevel DSTATCOM. The dc voltage balancing control for CHB-DSTATCOM is splitted into the average voltage controller and the voltage balancing controller, which are designed to regulate the active power flow between the CHB-DSTATCOM with the grid and to regulate active power flow among each inverter units, respectively. The effectiveness of the control algorithm is validated by the simulation results.
