In grid-tied inverter (GTI) systems, the three-phase asymmetric LCL (A- LCL) filter has outstanding characteristics of simple structure, almost the smallest total inductance, and the strong resistance to the adverse effects of parameter shifts. Nevertheless, the order of this kind of power filter is high, and the control model is complicated due to its asymmetric structure. In this paper, a simplified modeling method, which effectively reduces the system order is proposed, without affecting the control performance. Then, the Kalman filter estimation (KF-estimation) is adopted to estimate the voltage at the point of common coupling (PCC) of the phase locked loop (PLL), which saves the voltage sensors, saves the costs, and improves the system’s ability to resist hardware failures. A 380 V/50 Hz/6 kW three-phase laboratory setup has been developed to verify the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed control method.
