Abstract: This research aims to present a novel direct power control (DPC) strategy of three-phase PWM AC/DC converters. In this strategy, the regulation of the dc-bus voltage is based on nonlinear sliding mode controller (SMC), the control of the instantaneous active and reactive power is performed by fuzzy logic controllers (FLC) and also the artificial neural networks (ANN) approach is used to select the switching states of PWM AC/DC converter. The sliding mode control is an effective tool to minimise disturbances. Nevertheless, the chattering phenomenon depicts a major problem for variable structure systems (VSS). To overcome this drawback, a saturation function is employed to decrease chattering effects. The proposed method allows, on the one hand, to steer the dc-bus voltage, the instantaneous active and reactive power to their reference values. On the other hand, it enables to reduce the harmonic disturbances, the power ripples and to realise a unity power factor (UPF) operation. Simulation results are provided to confirm the efficiency, the robustness and the performances of the proposed DPC scheme in different conditions of simulation.
