Direct power control (DPC) has received a significant amount of research attention because of its benefits such as simplicity, robustness and excellent dynamic response. Conventional switching-table-based single-vector DPC (SV-DPC) presents irregular power ripples and variable switching frequency, due to the use of predefined switching table and hysteresis comparators. To solve these problems, two-vector DPC (TV-DPC) and three-vector DPC (THV-DPC) based three-phase pulse width modulation (PWM) rectifier are proposed. Although the performance of the THV-DPC is better than that of TV-DPC, its algorithm implementation is very complex and time consuming. In this paper, two-three combined vector DPC (TTCV-DPC) algorithm is presented which combines two and three voltage vectors by the help of the new switching table. The proposed algorithm has less complexity than the THV-DPC and better performance than the TV-DPC. Comprehensive simulations demonstrate the proposed method can get lower power ripple and lower grid-side current total harmonic distortion (THD) than that of TV-DPC.
