Abstract

This project presents the diode-clamped inverter (neutral-point clamped) topology. The project also presents the most relevant control and modulation method developed for this family of converters: multilevel sinusoidal pulse width modulation. Finally, the peripherally developing areas such as high-voltage high-power use Multilevel Inverters for future development are addressed. Furthermore, in this study, reduction of harmonics has been stressed on using Diode Clamped Multilevel Inverters (DCMLI). It also states the adverse effects of Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) on generation and transmission equipments. It also explains about Common Mode Voltage and its effects in brief. Multilevel Inverters have been designed, modeled and simulated and the output results have been depicted in the form of waveforms, THD analysis modules using MATLAB SIMULINK and the results are systematically tabulated. The percentage of THD is reduced as the number of levels is increased.
