This paper proposes operating a three-level Neutral Point Clamped (NPC) inverter using a two-level PWM method. This allows for the clamping diodes to be rated at a fraction of the main switches due to their low average current requirement. The use of a charge pump as a low cost method to obtain the isolated gate drive power supplies is extended for use with(More)
