Abstract

This paper analyzes the performance of a gridtied, wide power range, transformerless, modified threephase Current Source Inverter (CSI), named CSI7. The CSI7 topology is here analyzed along with a suitable Space Vector Modulation (SVM) strategy able to attenuate the excitation of the output CL filter. The theoretical analysis and simple analytic expressions highlighted the performance and limitations of the topology when employed as a singlestage PV inverter, with particular emphasis on injected grid currents distortion and ground leakage current values. The inverter wide input range allows interfacing PV strings of different module count with a simple closed loop control. The principle of operation and control is described, the viability of the CSI7 topology was assessed with simulations and extensive experiments on a full-size laboratory prototype.
