ABSTRACT
The performance of multilevel inverter (such as switching loss and harmonics) is mainly decided by its modulation strategies. This paper focuses on a hybrid modulation strategy for asymmetric cascaded sevenlevel inverter. The proposed technique combines the fundamental frequency switching scheme and Variable Frequency Inverted Sine Pulse Width Modulation (VFISPWM). A detailed study of the modulation technique has been carried out through MATLAB/SIMULINK for switching losses and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).A comparative evaluation between hybrid modulation strategy and the conventional Phase Disposition (PD) PWM method has been presented in terms of output voltage quality, power circuitry complexity, Distortion Factor (DF) and THD. The performance of asymmetric cascaded MLI with the proposed modulation strategy has been studied both for linear and non-linear loads and the simulation results have been verified experimentally.
