This paper describes the design of a (4-kV, 4.16-MVA) three-level neutral-point-clamped-, three-level flying-capacitor-, four-level flying-capacitor-, and nine-level seriesconnected H-bridge voltage-source converter on the basis of state-of-the-art 6.5-, 4.5-, 3.3- and 1.7-kV insulated gate bipolar transistors. The semiconductor loss distribution and the design of semiconductors and passive components are compared for a medium switching frequency assuming a constant converter efficiency of… CONTINUE READING
