This paper presents a method to enhance the dc-bus voltage control loop of a single-phase grid-connected dc/ac converter which improves its responses in terms of oscillation on its dc-bus voltage as well as its output ac current. Conventionally, the double-frequency (2-f) ripple is reduced by using a large electrolyte capacitor which increases the cost and size of the system. A state-of-the-art approach is to use a notch filter (NF) to block the 2-f ripple in the voltage control loop. This can significantly reduce the capacitor size. The existing presentations of this method, however, do not integrate the internal dynamics of the NF into consideration. This paper proposes a new way of implementing the NF which allows integration of its internal variables into the control loop. The resulted system exhibits enhanced transient responses at both the dc-bus voltage and the output ac current. The proposed method is analyzed in detail and its effectiveness is verified through simulations and experimental results.
