This paper proposes a new control method for the previously proposed large-capacity capacitor simulator, which can perform an inner series resistor of the EDLCs. In the proposed large-capacity capacitor simulator, one of three legs performs a bi-directional dc-dc converter. The others are used for a single-phase PWM rectifier. In the charging operation of the proposed large-capacity simulator, one-leg is used as a boost converter. Most power, which is stored in the proposed simulator, is injected to the utility through the PWM rectifier. In the discharging operation, the one-leg performs a buck converter. Most power, which is supplied to the load, is from the utility through the PWM rectifier. Thus the proposed simulator performs a large-capacity capacitor with an inner resistor in both charging and discharging operations. The basic principle of the proposed simulator is discussed in detail. The validity and excellent practicability of the proposed control method for the large-capacity capacitor simulator are confirmed using PSIM software.
