Impact of integration of distributed generation (DG) sources on large power networks cannot be studied accurately using computer simulations since building of accurate models of a variety of DG sources and their controls is challenging. Power hardware in the loop (PHIL) simulations help realistic integration studies as they allow interfacing of physical DG systems with well-established power grid models running on real-time digital simulators. Power amplifiers are required for interfacing the real-time simulator and the power hardware in a PHIL simulation. The miniature full spectrum simulator (mini-FSS) is an educational real-time simulator developed under the National Mission on Power Electronics Technology (NaMPET) Phase II, Government of India. To extend the capabilities of the mini-FSS for PHIL simulation, a 10-kVA current controlled voltage source inverter (VSI) based power amplifier is developed. This paper presents the design aspects of the current controlled VSI amplifier. A synchronous generator with constant excitation voltage and constant frequency is simulated on the mini-FSS, and an actual three-phase resistive load is interfaced to the mini-FSS using the amplifier developed. The effectiveness of the current controlled VSI interface is verified under various loading conditions. The PHIL simulation results obtained using the mini-FSS are found to be satisfactory.
