Abstract: In the rapid development process of a high-speed electrified railway, power quality problems in traction power grid have become increasingly deteriorative. In order to ensure a three-phase balanced traction power grid, a modular multilevel converter based railway traction power conditioner (RTPC) is presented. The RTPC consists of four H-Bridge clusters and filter inductors, and it can be directly connected to traction feeders in a co-phase traction system without insulation transformers. According to the equivalent circuit analysis of RTPC system, it can be considered as four single-phase inversion systems. Based on the equivalent control model of each single-phase cluster, the relationship between the multilevel output voltage and current slopes in a control period is analyzed, and an improved model predictive control is proposed. Moreover, a linear combination of two different output levels is proposed to improve tracking performance of cluster current control, and enhance the waveform quality of ac current. Finally, both simulation and experiment results are presented to verify the effectiveness of the structure and its control method.
