An extended commutation cell (ECC) is a four-port four-switch power processing cell that allows for bidirectional energy transport in two orthogonal directions throughout the structure. By cascading multiple cells a high-quality output voltage waveform can be constructed with a high number of levels. The voltage across each cell capacitor can be adjusted independently of the load, resulting in a high flexibility in output levels. This paper derives a robust sliding mode control algorithm for… CONTINUE READING
