A NEW STRUCTURE OF FIVE-LEVEL DIODE CLAMPED INVERTER WITH REDUCING ITS ELEMENTS

Othman M. Anssari

Abstract


At the high power switching circuit's applications, when the harmonic distortion is harmful, a multi-level diode clamped inverter is useful, especially when reduced total harmonic distortion and high power are desired. But when the levels get a rise, number of semiconductors are also rising, which leads to many problems such as increasing cost, losses, installation area, and total harmonic distortion. Many researchers have tried to find solutions to these problems. In this sense, this paper focuses on: a) build a new structure of five level diode clamped inverter. b) Increase the efficiency of the inverter by reducing the number of switches. c) Reduce the total harmonic distortion.
The theoretical calculation and simulation results are performed for five level diode clamped inverter by MATLAB/ SIMULINK.
