Design of New Cascaded Multilevel Inverter with Symmetrical DC-voltage Source

Maham Fatima, Umer Shahid, Abubakar Siddique, Waseem Aslam
Abstract—In this paper, a new cascaded module of multilevel inverter is proposed. The proposed topology produces a large number of levels with reduced total harmonic distortion (THD). This module consists of less number of MOSFETs and gate drivers which optimize the design of MLI in term of complexity, cost, control and installation. The performance analysis of proposed module is done by using a modulation technique. Simulation results for 17-level are evaluated on MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Index Terms—Multilevel inverter, symmetrical DC source, innovative PWM, THD.
