Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 25)


The chapter analyzes methods of nonlinear filtering and control which are based on differential flatness theory and examines their use in power electronics, aiming at connecting various types of power generation units to the grid (e.g., converters and inverters). In particular, the chapter proposes differential flatness theory for state estimation-based control of three-phase voltage source converters, for state estimation-based control of voltage inverters finding application to the connection of photovoltaics to the electricity grid, and finally for decentralized control and synchronization of distributed inverters which are used to interface DC power units with the electricity network
