To accomplish superior harmonic compensation performance using distributed generation (DG) unit power electronics interfaces, an adaptive hybrid voltage and current controlled method (HCM) is proposed in this paper. It shows that the proposed adaptive HCM can reduce the numbers of low-pass/bandpass filters in the DG unit digital controller. Moreover, phase-locked loops are not necessary as the microgrid frequency deviation can be automatically identified by the power control loop. Consequently, the proposed control method provides opportunities to reduce DG control complexity, without affecting the harmonic compensation performance. Comprehensive simulated and experimental results from a single-phase microgrid are provided to verify the feasibility of the proposed adaptive HCM approach.
