Multilevel inverters have been drawing attention in the recent years especially in the distributed energy resources area due to the fact that various batteries and solar cell can be connected through multilevel inverter to feed a load or the ac grid. Multilevel inverter becomes an alternative in the area of high- power medium-voltage energy control. Hence, Harmonic mitigation in multi-level inverters are to be considered very important task nowadays. For eliminating the harmonics lot of researchers have suggested modifications in the circuit topology and optimal selection of firing angle using various types of optimization algorithms. This paper discusses a review application by different optimization techniques for harmonic mitigation in multilevel inverters. Finally the investigation on various multilevel inverter topologies, methods of elimination of harmonics and conclusion has also been discussed.
