This paper presents the performance of a three-phase current source inverter (CSI) in island mode voltage-controlled operation. Simple converter structure, low switching count and inherent boosting capability among the features offered by CSI. However, less investigation has been done with regards to the performance of CSI especially on its control system for island and grid-connected photovoltaic system. Thus, this study aims to investigate the suitability of proportional-integral (PI) and proportional-resonant (PR) control including their dynamic equations and state-space modeling. The results show that both controllers able to perform satisfactory in achieving zero steady-state error and balanced sinusoidal output voltage and current. PI control is superior in fast response time and excellent harmonic rejection than inverter using PR control PR control on the other hand, able to give more robust performance during imbalance occur than PI control due to individual control of the phases. This study may becomes one of the references with regard to current source inverter for early career researchers. as All results presented in this paper are verified with varying operational parameters in MATLAB/ SIMULINK platform.
