In this paper, a novel single-loop flatness-based controller (FBC) is proposed to control the grid-side current in a shunt converter connected to a weak grid through an LCL-filter. After its mathematical description, the paper reports controller implementation and some performance comparisons with two distinct implementations of the widely diffused vector current control approach, during balanced and unbalanced grid voltages, and weak grid conditions. Obtained results highlight higher tracking capability and better dynamic response of the proposed FBC. Moreover, because of its reduced negative conductance region, unstable behaviors that can be observed in weak grids appear significantly improved due to a reduced influence of the phase-locked loop system.
