Active neutral-point-clamped (ANPC) converter is a well-known type of multilevel converter which is commercially available in high-power medium-voltage drive market. Since conduction loss investigation is advantageous in design phase of converters, this paper presents an analytical approach to calculate and investigate conduction power loss in ANPC converter. First, rms and average currents of IGBTs and anti-parallel diodes are analytically calculated by considering the associated duty cycle of… CONTINUE READING
