It is well-known that attainable DC link voltage loop bandwidth in grid-connected converters operating with unity power factor is limited due to trade-off with AC-side current total harmonic distortion (THD). The letter reveals that THD requirement directly imposes the value of voltage loop gain magnitude at double-grid frequency; therefore the dynamic performance may be improved without deteriorating the grid-side current quality by modifying the controller structure such that the loop gain magnitude at double-grid frequency and the crossover frequency are decoupled. Experimental results validate the revealed findings.
