This paper introduces a new multilevel converter topology that has many steps with fewer power electronic switches. The proposed circuit consists of series-connected submultilevel converters blocks. The optimal structures of this topology are investigated for various objectives, such as minimum number of switches and capacitors, and minimum standing voltage on switches for producing maximum output voltage steps. A new algorithm for determination of dc voltage sourcespsila magnitudes has also… CONTINUE READING
