Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach for achieving both a tight DC voltage regulation and a power factor control by applying the Reaching Law Sliding Mode Control (RL-SMC) and the conventional Sliding Mode Control (SMC). Applying these strategies on a matrix rectifier (MR) can achieve a unity grid side power factor when the DC load changes widely and it can provide a ripple-free output voltage that is easily affected by distortions of the three-phase ac voltage supply. Furthermore, by employing the reaching law on the SMC can solve the chatting problem of the sliding motion. Comparative Matlab simulations and experimental verifications for these strategies have been presented and discussed in this paper. The results show that by applying the SMC and RL-SMC on a MR can achieve a unity grid side power factor and a regulated ripple-free DC output.
