This chapter presents the analysis and design of different control strategies of unit power factor three-phase PWM rectifier: hysteresis current control, voltage-oriented control (VOC), and direct power control (DPC), in order to obtain high-performance DC bus voltage, lower input current harmonics, and higher unit power factor (UPF). The studied control strategies presented in this work are developed in MATLAB/Simulink environment and implemented in software of the DS1104 board. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate well the performance of the PWM rectifier control techniques.
