Abstract:


Multilevel inverters are widely used in power generation because they offer high performance in the electricity quality, however they require a large number of switching devices and control circuitry. In this work a novel multilevel inverter structure is presented. The new topology reduces considerably the number of switching devices and voltage sources. The multilevel inverter operation was verified through simulation using the software MATLAB/Simulink®, the topology is compared with the cascaded multilevel inverter.
