– A method is presented to compute the switching angles in a multilevel converter so as to produce the required fundamental voltage while at the same time not generate higher order harmonics. Previous work has shown that the transcendental equations characterizing the harmonic content can be converted to polynomial equations which are then solved using the(More)
—This paper presents a reduced switching-frequency active-harmonic-elimination method (RAHEM) to eliminate any number of specific order harmonics of multilevel converters. First, resultant theory is applied to transcendental equations to eliminate low-order harmonics and to determine switching angles for a fundamental frequency-switching scheme. Next, based(More)
—In this work, a method is given to compute the switching angles in a multilevel converter to produce the required fundamental voltage while at the same time cancel out specified higher order harmonics. Specifically, a complete analysis is given for a seven-level converter (three dc sources), where it is shown that for a range of the modulation index , the(More)
– The mathematical theory of resultants is used to compute the switching angles in a multilevel converter so that it produces the required fundamental voltage while at the same time cancels out unwanted order harmonics. Experimental results are given for the three DC source case. It is shown that for a range of the modulation index m I , the switching(More)
