Simulation Study of Different Modulation Techniques for Three-Level Quasi-Z-Source Inverter

Open access


In this paper several modulation techniques for a three-level neutral-point-clamped quasi impedance source inverter are proposed and discussed. Mathematical descriptions with simulation results are presented for each modulation technique. Their advantages and disadvantages are shown and guidelines for further improvement are provided.
