© 2017 IEEE. This paper presents an improved single phase seven-level active rectifier architecture controlled by finite control set model predictive control (FCS-MPC). The FCS-MPC is designed to enable power conversion with a unity power factor and generate seven level voltage waveform at the input. The proposed active rectifier architecture reduces harmonic contents of the rectifier input current by producing different voltage levels at the rectifier input. Owing to the architecture and multilevel operation, it reduces the EMI filter size, input current harmonic, the voltage rating on devices and switching losses that are lower than those of conventional three-level rectifier topologies. The proposed converter can also be operated as a multilevel inverter. Extensive simulation results are presented to verify the proposed converter when the load changes, the reference active and reactive power changes.
