Grid Tie Three Phase Voltage PWM converters can be conceived as current sources that inject currents into the grid at the point of common coupling (PCC). In order to achieve a good performance, the voltage source inverter (VSI) should be commanded by a current controller to track as accurate as possible a current reference. Pulse with modulation (PWM) and space vector modulation (SVM) are two techniques used in VSIs to generate the time average output voltage demanded by the current controller. By using the average model of the VSI, controlled either by PWM or by SVM, we can use feedback linear control for the analysis and design of the current controller. The main goal of this technical paper is to illustrate an analytical formula to calculate the gains of the proportional-integral current controller. The gains are calculated based on the values of the coupling inductivity, the DC Bus voltage and the switching frequency and given for two PWM modulation methods.
