This paper proposed a novel double closed control strategy for single-phase voltage source pulse width modulation (PWM) rectifier based on active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) and dq current decoupling control. First, the mathematical model of the single-phase PWM rectifier in the d-q axis synchronous rotating reference frame is established by constructing a virtual component using a second-order generalized integrator (SOGI). Then, the mathematical model is simplified according to the active power conservation, and the first-order equation of single-phase PWM rectifier voltage outer loop is acquired. A linear auto-disturbance rejection controller is used to design the voltage outer loop according to the first-order equation. Finally, the proposed control strategy and the traditional PI control are compared and verified by simulation and physical experiments. Both simulation and experimental results confirm that the proposed control strategy has excellent dynamic performance and strong rejection ability to disturbances.
