  • grid converter control for WTS;
  • control issues, use of voltage source converter - in wind turbine (WT) systems;
  • AC power, controlled with aim of feeding main grid - or of feeding stand-alone loads or micro-grid;
  • direct power control, implemented with or without a separate PWM modulator;
  • LCL-filter inverter - connected to grid;
  • AC voltage control, across capacitor - system operating in a stand-alone mode or in micro-grid;
  • cascaded control of DC voltage control (VC) through AC current control (CC);
  • voltage oriented control and direct power control;
  • back-to-back control setup - for testing stand-alone/grid-connected operation;
  • inverse and direct droop control - with current loop and multiloop
