Load Side Converter Control

This example shows how to control the RMS voltage in a load-side converter. The load is provided by a three-phase series RL element. The Control subsystem uses a PI-based cascade control structure with two control loops, an outer voltage control loop and an inner current control loop. The simulation uses step references. The Scopes subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
