Abstract: This paper presents multifunctional operation capability of three level cascade H bridge inverter for grid connected solar pv application. The solar panel and inverter are modelled for unbalance and nonlinear loads with three control techniques (pq,dq,cpt) and its performance is simulated in the MATLAB environment using SIMULINK and Sim Power System (SPS) toolboxes. The performance of inverter is evaluated for harmonics elimination, power factor correction apart from active and reactive power support to grid and nonlinear load .Performance of three level H bridge inverter is evaluated for both PV mode and STATCOM mode using three control techniques for distribution grid. 
Keywords: Active Power Filters, Cascaded H-bridge Inverters, Compensation Strategies, Conservative Power Theory, Space Vector Modulation.
