Abstract— This paper focuses on a combination of three-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) with a predictive current control to provide an optimized system for three-phase inverter that controls the load current. The present contribution presents a Finite Set-Model Predictive Control (FS-MPC) strategy for a two-level three-phase VSI with resistive- inductive load (RL-Load). In order to reduce the computational effort which gives rise to multiple possibilities has been determined. With different cases the evaluation of the system is done. Firstly, the system performance with long prediction horizon is carried out. Secondly, the dynamic response of the system with step change in the amplitude of the reference is investigated. Simulations are carried out using MATLAB/Simulink to test the effectiveness of an FS-MPC for the two-level VSI with RL-Load.

Index Terms— Finite Set-Model predictive control, voltage source inverter, RL-Load, prediction horizon.
