In a hybrid ac-dc microgrid, stiff voltage sources may appear in either the dc or ac subgrids which gives rise to multiple operation modes as power dispatch changes. This creates a challenge for designing the interlink converter between the ac and dc subgrids since the different modes require different interlink controls. To solve this problem, this paper proposes the concept of a transfverter inspired by how transformers link ac grids. Like a transformer, a transfverter can react to the presence of stiff voltage sources on either the dc or ac side and reflect the “stiffness” and voltage stabilizing capability to the other side. A back-to-back converter with droop control is used as the underlying technology to implement this concept. A novel optimization method called model bank synthesis is proposed to find control parameters for the interlink converter that offer the best controller performance across the different microgrid modes without requiring mode-changing of the controller. The effectiveness of the proposed solution is validated through both simulation and experiments.

The direct chain-link modular multilevel dc converter has raised great interest recently in medium/high- voltage dc-dc conversion due to the high power device utilization and lower power losses than the front-to-front configurations of modular multilevel converter. This paper introduces a single-phase chain-link modular multilevel buck-boost converter for medium voltage dc applications and presents an analysis methodology on its internal circulating current frequency. Its connection and comparison with the classic dc-ac modular multilevel converter are given first, and its dc and ac components are analyzed in the respective equivalent circuits. Then, the derivation methodology for the proper circulating current frequency with lowest internal reactive power is provided, which could minimize the current stress and decrease the power losses. Also, this method can be directly applied in the derivative topologies and further configurations to satisfy various conversion requirements. The theoretical analysis is verified by a set of full-scaled simulations and further verified against experimental tests on a down-scaled prototype.

The dc-dc conversion will play an important role in multi-terminal dc networks and dc grids. This paper presents two isolated resonant modular multilevel converters (IRMMCs) to fulfill the large step-ratio conversion for medium voltage dc (MVDC) networks. The conventional resonant modular multilevel converters (RMMCs) suffer the common problems of non-isolation and high current stress, which are solved in the proposed IRMMCs. They not only inherit the beneficial features of inherent sub-module (SM) voltage-balancing and soft-switching operation from RMMCs, but also develop multi-module configurations to neutralize the current ripples on both sides of the dc-links. The theoretical analysis is verified by a set of full-scaled simulations for different application examples in MVDC collection and distribution. The results demonstrate the proposed IRMMCs and its derived configurations have good potential for operation as large step-ratio MVDC transformers.
