A three-phase nonlinear load emulator using a power electronic converter is presented in this study. The proposed nonlinear load emulator is intended to be used in an ultrawide-area grid transmission network emulator, also called hardware testbed (HTB). The emulator converter is controlled in rectifier mode to act as the real nonlinear three-phase diode rectifier load. This paper presents an accurate controller for the nonlinear load emulator based on a three-phase diode rectifier system to be used in the HTB. This study also demonstrates simulation and experimental results for verification of the proposed controller.
