Multilevel inverters are very important in renewable energy applications. Asymmetrical type of multilevel inverters is used for saving of the number of dc sources, gate drive circuits and bridges. It gives the number of levels for output voltage higher than from symmetrical type. Multi-carrier based sinusoidal pulse width modulation (MCB-SPWM) and the selective harmonic elimination pulse width modulation (SHE-PWM) are commonly types of modulation techniques. The comparison between MCB-SPWM and… Expand
