Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) is one of the essential Power Electronic Converters (PEC) which is used to utilize the power from the Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in an efficient manner. Some of the RES produces power in the form of the dc. VSI is used to convert the dc power into ac power. Various control techniques are implemented to control the inverter circuits. This paper presents a performance analysis of current control with Revised Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (RSVPWM) technique and Discrete Model Predictive Control (DMPC) technique. This analysis is performed on 3-phase VSI. Basic concepts, control circuits, mathematical models are explained and the control techniques are simulated using MATLAB / Simulink tool. Simulation results are presented and performances of the both control techniques are compared.
