“…The 2ω current that needs to be injected is either in phase or in anti-phase with the 2ω voltage components in the CLs depending on the direction of power flow. Since V LC is imposed by the AC side and no additions can be made to it, i 2ω is driven by adding 2ω components only in V T C as shown in (13).…”

“…The AAC has almost a similar structure to the MMC except for director switches in the upper and lower arms and the use of full-bridges as submodules [12]. Another hybrid multilevel converter topology is the Series Bridge Converter (SBC) proposed in [13] with series connection of converter phases on the DC side. The SBC topology has the benefit of a significantly more compact footprint than the MMC but the drawback of a limited power transfer capability during AC faults, due to the constraints imposed by the series connection of phases on the DC side.…”

“…The concept of the SBC [19], [20] has been derived as an evolution of the PH-M2C topology, with the addition of an array of series full-bridge SMs (SFBs) in between the CLs and H-bridges. The SFBs allow decoupling the AC and DC side voltages to achieve full reactive power control.…”

“…However, the addition of the SFBs into the converter topology adds more complexity to the system, in particular making the internal energy control and balancing more challenging. The aim of this paper is to provide a detailed analysis of the basic energy management concept introduced in [20], with a focus on the control design and experimental validation of the topology and the proposed control.…”
