Power loss is an important parameter in multilevel inverters. In this paper, by selecting proper switching array, the switching losses of the cascaded multilevel inverters which produce more than 3 levels in each module is minimized. First, the switching loss equations are presented, and the effect of generated level in each module is studied. In order to… CONTINUE READING
