Abstract

Performance evaluation and experimental validation of space vector PWM techniques with DC link voltage control in cascaded architecture of DC-DC stage followed by DC-AC stage for EV/HEV powertrain is carried out. 240°-Clamped PWM (240CPWM) and Advanced Bus Clamped PWM (ABCPWM) are the best performing PWM methods considering the combined performance of THD in line currents and efficiency. 240CPWM and ABCPWM are studied in detail both with constant and variable DC link voltage control and compared with benchmark PWM methods i.e., CSVPWM and DPWM1. Cascaded topology operation of DC-DC stage with DC-AC stage that allows the variable DC link voltage control in EV/HEV powertrain is studied in detail. Experimental results from a 10 kW hardware prototype are presented. Supremacy of one PWM method over the other is based on combined best performance in terms of THD and efficiency. 240CPWM outperforms all other PWM methods under consideration which is shown by a performance metric developed on the basis of combined performance of THD and efficiency.
