Cascaded Multilevel Inverter with PWM Control Method

  title={Cascaded Multilevel Inverter with PWM Control Method},
  author={Chamala Venkateswarlu and B. Tech},
A hybrid cascaded multilevel inverter with PWM method is presented in this paper. It consists of a standard 3-leg inverter (one leg for each phase) and H- bridge in series with each inverter leg. It can use only a single DC power source to supply a standard 3-leg inverter along with three full H-bridges supplied by capacitors. Multilevel carrier- based PWM method is used to produce a five-level phase voltage. The inverter can be used in hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and electric vehicles (EV…
