In this paper, a modular three-phase multilevel inverter specially suited for electrical drive applications is proposed. Unlike the cascaded H-bridge inverter, this topology is based on power cells connected in cascade using two inverter legs in series. A detailed analysis of the structure and the development of design equations for the load voltage with n levels are carried out using pulsewidth-modulation phase-shifted multicarrier modulation. Simulations and experimental results for a 15-kW three-phase system, with nine voltage levels, validate the study presented.
