PWM, Multilevel Inverter, Total harmonic distortion


With increasing demand for high power energy which is fulfilled by use of semiconductors with higher voltage and current to execute such applications. In order to derive high power from medium power-based semiconductors, multilevel inverters are considered to be best solution with advantages over conventional resources. An advanced multi-level inverter topology is offered to optimize the number of switches and improve THD.
