This paper initially investigates the conventional LCL filter grid-connected inverts system, which introduces the control strategy with inverter-side current feedback, and analyzes the deficiencies within the strategy. The stability of the controller can be improved by adopting the active damping scheme. However, the output current of the inverter is severely influenced by the external grid voltage distortion and the grid low-order harmonic voltage. In order to reduce this impact and gain high-quality power, a novel control strategy is proposed in this paper, in which the virtual complex impedance is introduced to feed grid voltage forward. By using the proposed control strategy, the total harmonic distortion can be greatly decreased, allowing the grid current to synchronize the reference current well. In addition, the modulation of the virtual complex impedance by controller can also quantificationally regulate the equivalent output impedance, which brings great convenience for inverters system designers to calculating and devising. Simulation results are presented to prove the validity and improvements achieved by the proposed controller.
