Multilevel inverters with a large number of steps can generate high quality voltage waveforms, good enough to be considered as suitable voltage source generators. An advanced multilevel inverter topology is proposed to optimize number of bidirectional switches. In this work the an five-level cascade H-bridge Inverter, which uses multicarrier based control structure and two capacitor with 10 switching MOSFETs topology is being presented. Analysis is done for RL and pure resistive load. The PWM strategy reduces the THD and this strategy enhances the fundamental output voltage. The experimental and simulated results show that total harmonic distortion of output voltage and current waveform shapes are 5.16 % and 5.77% respectively for RL load which are within the acceptable limits.
