Multilevel Converters have emerged as a promising alternative to traditional two level converters, especially flying capacitor converters because of the fact that this topology requires only a main dc-link voltage and presents a easy way to increase the output voltage levels by increasing the number of cells. Unfortunately, a balancing of capacitor voltage is required. Recently, predictive control algorithms have been presented in order to control not only the output current but also to achieve… CONTINUE READING
