This paper presents a comparison between two switching techniques namely Phase Offset Disposition Sinusoidal PWM (POD-SPWM) and Symmetrical PWM switching for a generalized current source multilevel inverter (MCSI) topology. One of the advantages of MCSI is it can reduce the total harmonic distortion (THD) at the output load current with a sinusoidal current waveform. In this paper, the generalized MCSI with the different levels has been developed with Matlab@simulation software in order to… Expand
