In this paper, the basic algebraic properties of the optimal PWM problem for single-phase inverters are revealed. Specifically, it is shown that the nonlinear design equations given by the standard mathematical formulation of the problem can be reformulated, and that the sought solution can be found by computing the roots of a single univariate polynomial P(x), for which algorithms are readily available. Moreover, it is shown that the polynomials P(x) associated with the optimal PWM problem are orthogonal and can therefore be obtained via simple recursions. The reformulation draws upon the Newton identities, Pade approximation theory, and properties of symmetric functions. As a result, fast O(n log2 n) algorithms are derived that provide the exact solution to the optimal PWM problem. For the PWM harmonic elimination problem, explicit formulas are derived that further simplify the algorithm
