Multilevel power electronic converters are the converter of choice in medium-voltage applications due to their reduced switch voltage stress, better harmonic performance, and lower switching losses. Although it has received little attention, the flying-capacitor multilevel converter has a distinct advantage in terms of its ease of capacitor voltage balancing. A number of techniques have been presented in the literature for capacitor voltage balancing, some relying on “self-balancing” properties… CONTINUE READING
