This article proposes a control and modulation strategy for medium-voltage (MV) drives that exhibits excellent steady-state and transient behavior. Specifically, optimized pulse patterns (OPPs) and direct model predictive control are employed so that the associated advantages of both, such as minimum stator current total demand distortion (TDD) and fast transients, respectively, are fully exploited. To do so, the current reference trajectory tracking and modulation problems are addressed in a coordinated manner in the form of a constrained optimization problem that utilizes the knowledge of the stator current evolution-as described by its gradient-within the prediction horizon. Solving this problem yields the optimal real-time modification of the offline-computed OPP, which guarantees that very low-and close to its theoretical minimum value-stator current TDD is produced at steady state, and very short settling times during transients. To highlight the effectiveness of the proposed strategy, a variable speed drive system consisting of a three-level neutral point clamped inverter and an MV induction machine serves as a case study.
