Abstract
In this paper, a novel inverter topology, Eight Switches Inverter (ESI), is proposed for HEV, especially PHEV system to reduce the number of switches, and to achieve high performance during discharging mode, braking mode and charging mode from grid. Thereby, this topology gives the ability to connect the vehicle with grid at home or at work to charge the Energy Storage System (ESS) easily, especially the battery unit. In addition, the cost and the volume of the power electronics unit (PEU) have reduced. In this research, there are two control strategies have tested to validate the performance of the proposed system. These are indirect field-oriented controller (IFOC) and Space Vector PWM (SVPWM). The proposed scheme has been simulated by MATLAB/ SIMULINK. Simulation results have demonstrated that a novel converter topology has achieved the discharging mode and charge mode from grid with different control techniques efficiently. Moreover, it is found that the SVPWM scheme is the best for this application
