Abstract: This paper presents Virtual flux based and Voltage based control schemes for PWM rectifiers in grid connected distributed generation systems from renewable sources are presented. In particular, the so-called Voltage Oriented Control (VOC), Direct Power Control (DPC), two DPC based techniques to minimize the Common Mode (CM) emissions called DPC-EMC1 and DPC-EMC2 set up by the authors and their versions based on virtual flux. All the described techniques have been implemented using MATLAB/Simulink® (Classic version 8.2 Release name (R2013b)) and compared with each other. Theoretical background with results of simulations is provided. The advantages and disadvantages of the individual control strategies are documented.
