Somasekhar, VT and Gopakumar, K and Bauu, MR and Mohapatra, KK and Umanand, L (2002) A PWM scheme for a 3-level inverter cascading two 2-level inverters. In: Journal of Indian Insitute of Science, 82 (1). pp. 23-36.
This paper shows that 3-level inversion can be achieved by connecting two 2-level inverters in cascade. Two isolated power supplies with DC link voltages are required for the proposed circuit topology. The voltages constitute half of that of a conventional 3-level inverter topology. Neutral point fluctuation is absent in the proposed scheme when compared to conventional neutral point clamped 3-level inverter. A sine-triangle-based PWM scheme is presented for the proposed topology.
