The Selective Harmonic Elimination Pulse-Width Modulation (SHE-PWM) has been an inclusive research area in the field of Power Converters. This technique offers a tight control of the harmonic spectrum of a given voltage waveform generated by a power electronic converter along with a low number of switching transitions. It involves the solution of non-linear transcendental equation sets representing the relation between the amplitude of the fundamental wave, harmonic components and the switching angles. This paper reports solutions to the Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE) method based on novel usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technique such as Genetic algorithm (GA) for single-phase unipolar waveform. This paper uses Matlab GA Toolbox to generate the gate pulse pattern to eliminate the required order of harmonics at any demanded fundamental output voltage.
