In distributed generation, high power capability and high efficiency are very important requirements. For this reason, this paper proposes a new analytical procedure for selective harmonic elimination in five-level inverters operating at fundamental frequency. For each modulation index, the proposed method calculates all possible switching angles eliminating a specified odd harmonic from the output voltage.

Abstract

In distributed generation, high power capability and high efficiency are very important requirements. For this reason, this paper proposes a new analytical procedure for selective harmonic elimination in five-level inverters operating at fundamental frequency. For each modulation index, the proposed method calculates all possible switching angles eliminating a specified odd harmonic from the output voltage. The method has limited computational complexity, simple and cost-effective real-time implementation, and full capability of integration with closed loop control. Simulation and experimental results highlight full elimination of selected harmonic.
