© 2018 IEEE. The conventional predictive duty cycle control (CPDCC) of three-phase full-bridge ac/dc converters selects adjacent nonzero vector pair based on the grid-voltage vector location, then the duration for each vector is calculated. Though the vector selection method is quite simple, it has a significant disadvantage that the values of calculated durations could be frequently less than zero due to nonoptimal vector selection, which results in high current harmonics and power notches. It could be improved with improved predictive duty cycle control (IPDCC) by reselecting the nonzero vector pair when negative duration exists; however, the whole vector selection and calculation procedure are repeated. By theoretical verification that the power variation rates of reversible vector pair are symmetrical with respect to that of zero vector, this paper proposes the reversible predictive duty cycle control (RPDCC) simply by replacing the original vector with its opposite vector and the recalculation of vector duration is eliminated compared with IPDCC. Thus, the calculation effort is almost not increased compared with CPDCC while system performance is significantly improved. The proposed control is theoretically derived and verified with the simulation and experimental results showing that RPDCC has better steady and dynamic performance than CPDCC and IPDCC methods.
