This paper presents a novel space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) technique for three phase Z-source inverter. The proposed modified SVPWM has an additional shoot-through state for boosting the dc link voltage of the inverter beside active and zero states. The shoot-through states are evenly assigned to each phase within zero state. So zero voltage period is diminished for generating a shoot-through time, and active states are unchanged. Simulation and experimental results are presented to demonstrate the new features.
