Current challenges and application of the converter are reviewed, novel concept of smart converter and novel microgrid topology with modular design are proposed. Various kinds of control strategies are comprehensively researched and proposed to improve the performance. Through review of power electronic interface (PEI) and control strategies in RES, it is concluded that three-phase full-bridge converter is generally utilized for AC/DC bi-directional conversion and could realize DC/DC conversion with high frequency transformer. Novel topology of microgrid is proposed with modular structure and wireless communication ability by using three-phase full-bridge converter modules, which is extremely reliable, expandable and flexible. The control modes, the control strategies for each module and system control strategy are discussed. Meanwhile, the smart converter concept is proposed for RES to improve the utility power quality and system stability.University of Technology Sydney
