An QT, Sun L, Zhao K, et al., Electronics Letters 46 (13): 900-U48 Jun 2010. Four-switch three-phase inverters (FSTPIs) have been proposed to be used in low-cost applications because of the reduced number of semiconductor devices, and space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) techniques have also been introduced to control FSTPIs. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate the validity of the proposed method.

Lee K, Jahns TM, Lipo TA, et al., IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications 45 (6): 2010-2021 Nov-Dec 2009. In this paper, computationally efficient sinusoidal-disturbance estimation and elimination methods are introduced into the control of an active front end (AFE) voltage-source converter (VSC) to achieve effective disturbance rejection in high power systems with slower pulsewidth-modulation switching frequencies (e.g., 5 kHz) and limited current-controller bandwidth.
