In this thesis, the design of a voltage-source inverter (VSI)-based three-phase impedance analyzer’s perturbation injection unit (PIU) is described including all relevant power stage and control design. Both series and shunt injection are examined from .1 Hz to 1000Hz. Both types of injection are performed using only energy from the system under test stored in a DC link capacitor. Sinusoidal, square (pulse), and chirp perturbation waveforms are explored. Results from a constructed realization of the design are presented, and the limits of the device characterized. The maximum achievable perturbation power is 10 kW in shunt and 8 kW in series on a 460 V, 100 kW bus. Using the same conditions, maximum power is achievable from 10Hz to 100Hz, at .1Hz, .72 kW is achievable, and at 1000Hz, 6.0 kW is achievable.
