This work deals with the study of the open-source Arduino DUE board as a digital control platform for three-phase two-level Voltage-Source Converters (VSC) and Current-Source Converters (CSC), including ( ii ) the description of the power topologies, its connection to the load or the ac grid, and the electrical signals required for sensors and power valves, (ii) the description of the Arduino Due board, its features, and its connection with the sensors and power valves in the converter, and (iii) evaluation of the Arduino DUE's processing time required for typical power converter algorithms, such as modulation, mathematical transforms, and linear controllers typically used in these converters. Experimental results are presented to validate the study, showing that the Arduino DUE is a feasible digital control platform for this type of power converter.
