The paper deals with a three-phase rectifier controller design for monobloc configuration of a small Swirl turbine. The aim is phasing of the system to electrical power network. A cascade controller was used for the control: lower loop provides a current control and upper loop a voltage control. Symmetric optimum method and robust loop shaping control synthesis are employed for the controller design. Results are verified and compared by simulations applying original three-phase rectifier model taking into account high level of disturbances. Resulting system meets with reserve desired behavior.
