It is mandatory to keep the total harmonic distortion in the output of most inverters below the limits prescribed by different international standards. The harmonic distortions caused due to nonlinear loads may not get corrected by typical magnitude controller, like PID controller. Repetitive controller is more effective in such situations. Often, repetitive controller is used as add-on block to the conventional magnitude controller. Design of repetitive controller can be easily implemented on digital platform. Rapid change in phase and magnitude of inverter-filter's transfer function near corner frequency causes instability problems in repetitive controller. Various techniques have been proposed by researchers to overcome this problem. Most of the reported techniques rely on digital compensation. However, it is hard to find a digital compensator, which simultaneously meets the phase and gain requirements at moderate computational effort. Here, a new output voltage feedback scheme has been proposed, which simplifies the requirement of digital compensation. The proposed scheme requires an extra hardware but at negligible added cost. In spite of this extra hardware, the proposed circuit turns out to be more energy efficient in comparison to few popular schemes, reported in literature, where some resistance is introduced in the inverter's filter for better stability of controller. In addition to the proposed modification the paper presents a simplified explanation of the various factors affecting stability of repetitive controller. The paper also discusses a novel experimental method for verifying the efficacy of repetitive controller in suppressing distortion of any particular harmonic order. © 1986-2012 IEEE.
