A generalized single-phase multilevel current source inverter (MCSI) topology with self-balancing current is proposed, which uses the duality transformation from the generalized multilevel voltage source inverter (MVSI) topology. The existing single-phase 8- and 6-switch 5-level current source inverters (CSIs) can be derived from this generalized MCSI topology. In the proposed topology, each intermediate DC-link current level can be balanced automatically without adding any external circuits… CONTINUE READING
