This paper proposes a 3-level double conversion uninterruptible power supply with a new cooperative and dynamically weighted model predictive control technique. A 3-level DC-DC converter is used to improve the DC bus balance and the overall response of the UPS. A new cooperative model predictive control principle is proposed to enhance the response of multi-converter systems. New controllers are proposed for all converters of the UPS, based on the dynamically weighted model predictive control technique and using the presented cooperative principle. A new power management technique is also proposed for the UPS. The proposed 3-level UPS system presents improved dynamic response and steady-state performance in distinct operating points, when compared to the conventional system. Experimental results demonstrate the advantages of each proposed novelty.
