This paper proposes an adaptive control technique (ACT) for a three-phase, three-level, T-type rectifier based on online disturbance estimation and compensation. The proposed solution also regulates the DC-link voltage and grid currents under uncertainties, disturbances, measurement noises, and unbalanced grid voltages without cascaded control. The proposed controller consists of two layers; the first one is responsible for estimating nonlinearities and model uncertainties based on Kalman Filter Algorithm (KFA). The second layer is responsible for controlling both grid currents and DC link voltage using Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR). The proposed controller is analyzed theoretically, validated experimentally, and the performance of the proposed controller is compared with two other controllers. The simulation and experimental results prove the superiority of the proposed controller and show that the proposed controller can ensure fast-tracking performance with almost zero steady-state error. The proposed controller has the ability to overcome severe disturbances such as AC and DC side disturbances, measurement noises, and mathematical model’s uncertainties even up to 400%.
