Abstract: In this paper, an improved technique for Multilevel Inverter. The improved technique using less number of switches than conventional Cascade H- Bridge topology which enhances system performance decreases system complexity and also reduces total cost of the inverter. The main objective of this paper is to increase figure of output level by reducing number of power switches without any complexity in the circuit. The merit of this improved modified technique is to reduce THD and High output voltage level. Multicarrier PWM based techniques used for controlling, firing circuit of switching device. In this paper comparison between proposed improved technique and conventional cascaded H-Bridge inverter done. The number of output voltage level is nine. Simulation is done in MATLAB 2010b environment and the waveforms are obtained. The results are analysed using MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
Keywords: Multicarrier PWM (MC-PWM), Cascaded H-Bridge, THD, Reduced Switches.

Scope of the Article: Optical Devices
