Abstract: This article presents a Seven –level Inverter with Multi-Carrier Pulse Width Modulation (MCPWM) technique for PV applications.it compares the three major topologies and their Total Harmonics Distortion (THD) for PV applications. Finally, the Cascaded H-bridge inverter is the best and recommend topology for PV applications. These are simulated in MATLAB-Simulink. 
Keywords: Multilevel Inverter Topologies, Multi-Carrier Pulse Width Modulation (MCPWM), Total Harmonic Distortion.
Scope of the Article: Knowledge engineering tools and techniques
