Chapter 31 Multilevel Power Converters

  title={Chapter 31 Multilevel Power Converters},
  author={S. Khomfoi and L. Tolbert},
Numerous industrial applications have begun to require higher power apparatus in recent years. Some medium voltage motor drives and utility applications require medium voltage and megawatt power level. For a medium voltage grid, it is troublesome to connect only one power semiconductor switch directly. As a result, a multilevel power converter structure has been introduced as an alternative in high power and medium voltage situations. A multilevel converter not only achieves high power ratings… Expand
