Abstract  Current source inverter drives are sources o f harmonic and nonharmonic distortion in supply systems. The nonharmonic components have frequencies that change d h motor speed, so conventional filters might not be effective in redclcing their amplitude. The distortion calculation at the design stage &ws preventive actions to minimise the distortion at source by varying d c. link and/or a c . motor parameters. f the paper is to discuss the modeling o f the supply The aim o side current distortion and to analyse the effects o f nonideal supply conditions. The main utilizable modek, both analogue and numerical, are discussed and analysed Several laboratory and numerical experiments are reported to compare the differenl model characteristics and to analyse the current &tortion sensirivity to the supply voltage distortion and unbalance.

I. INTRODUCTION The analysis of the current source rectifier is well known when the d.c. load is a d.c. motor. When the d.c. load is an inverter feeding an a.c. machine, the analysis is not so straightforward. Current source Qpe inverter drives are now common for some high power, high speed applications where the inverter may be naturally commutated by voltages generated by the load. Such drives are sources of harmonic and nonharmonic distortion components in the supply side currents [ 11. The harmonic components have frequencies that are integer multiples of the ac system fundamental frequency and are similar to those generated by a d.c. motor drive. The nonharmonic components have frequencies that are not integer multiples of the system fundamental frequency and are generated by the d.c. side current ripple produced by the inverter. The nonharmonic components are referred to by the term "interharmonics".
This paper was presented at the 1994 Intemational Conference on Harmonics and Power Systems held in
Bologna, Italy, September 2123, 1994.
The frequencies of the interharmonic components change with the motor speed, so, as the drive is started or as the motor speed is changed, there is the possibility of exciting dormant a.c. system resonances remote from the drive; at certain motor speeds other problems such as light flicker can also result. Furthermore, conventional filters on the a s . side might not be effective in minimising the distortion. Therefore, the magnitude of interharmonic currents needs to be accurately evaluated and controlled. The trend in the international standards is to fix lower limits for the interharmonics than those for the harmonics [2]. In two previous papers [3,4], some of the authors performed studies to analyse the harmonic and the interharmonic current components generated by drives of current source type, with specific reference to the case of synchronous motor drives, assuming ideal working conditions: circuit physical symmetry, absence of supply voltage distortion and large values for the d.c. link reactance. One paper [3] describes the two principal interharmonic components generated by a synchronous motor drive and analyses the effect of d.c. link reactance upon the magnitude of interharmonic current components. To meet this end, the authors have used the experimental results obtained by means of an analogue experimental model. From the results of this paper, it is possible to postulate that the magnitude of the interharmonic current components decreases, but not linearly, with increasing d.c. link inductance. To overcome the difficulties associated with the use of an analogue experimental model, the paper [4] proposes a simple frequency domain analytical model for the prediction of the a.c. side distortion assuming a simplified commutation model. Recently, an analytical model has been presented [5], which uses switching functions, that is to say the modulation theory, to analyse how harmonics and interharmonics are transferred in both directions through three phase bridges. This model is also utilizable for the inverter dnve analysis and allows to take into account the supply voltage distortion and unbalance, but assuming again a simpllfied commutation model. The effects of non ideal working conditions (a.c. supply voltage distortion and unbalance, a.c. supply system impedance unbalance, noninfinite d.c. side reactance) have been analysed and documented for the case of current source rectifiers supplying a d.c. motor [6,7,8] or a battery system [9] or a superconductive coil [lo]. It has been demonstrated
