Multi-level Converter with Optimal Number of Power Electronic Devices

Abstract

In this paper, a new topology for cascaded multilevel converter based on sub multilevel converter units and full-bridge converters is proposed. The proposed topology significantly reduces the number of dc voltage sources, switches, IGBTs, and power diodes as the number of output voltage levels increases. Also, an algorithm to determine dc voltage sources… (More)
