Back-to-back system for five-level converter with common flying capacitors

Abstract

This study proposes a novel 5-level converter topology in which common flying capacitors (FCs) are shared by three phases. This circuit can output voltage patterns prohibited in the circuits of the previous study. Furthermore,a back-to-back (BTB) configuration can be realized by only increasing the number of the phase units of the 5-level converter. This… (More)
