This paper presents a super twisting sliding mode control (ST-SMC) for single-phase dynamic voltage restorers (DVRs). Unlike the conventional first-order sliding mode controller, the proposed ST-SMC technique eliminates the need for differentiating the compensation voltage in the sliding surface function while keeping the merits of first-order SMC. As a consequence of employing ST-SMC, a continuous control signal is achieved from which the pulse width modulation (PWM) signals can be generated. In this case, the inverter operates at constant switching frequency. The stability analysis of ST-SMC is also presented. The reference compensation voltage needed in ST-SMC is estimated by using Brockett oscillator based frequency-locked loop. Theoretical considerations are verified through experimental results under ideal and distorted grid voltage conditions. The obtained results show that the ST-SMC has good dynamic performance and can maintain the load voltage at desired level under voltage sag, swell and harmonically distorted grid voltages.
