This article explores the development of FPGA based controller for conventional and cascaded multilevel PWM single phase inverter. The conventional multilevel inverter is constructed by the H-bridge and cascaded multilevel inverter constructed by two full H-bridges. FPGA logic device is chosen for the hardware implementation of control circuit. VHDL language is used to model the inverter switching strategies. The proposed controller generates 4 and 8 control signals for conventional multilevel inverter and cascaded multilevel inverter respectively. These inverters provide 3-level and 7- level output voltages. Matlab/System generator and XILINX are used as a simulation and compiler architecture of control circuit embedded in FPGA. These inverter topologies with filters would have reduced harmonics and can operate at high efficiency.
