Investigation of negative sequence injection capability in H-bridge multilevel STATCOM
Paper in proceedings, 2014

The aim of this paper is to investigate the ability of star- and delta-connected H-bridge multilevel STATCOMs to exchange negative-sequence current with the grid. Zero-sequence injection is utilized for capacitor voltage balancing. It is shown that a singularity for these configurations exists, leading to limitations in the utilization of the compensator for asymmetry compensation purposes.
