This paper presents a new type of cascade inverter based on dual buck topology and phase-shift control scheme. The proposed cascade dual buck inverter with phase-shift control inherits all the merits of dual buck type inverters and overcomes some of their drawbacks. Compared to traditional cascade inverters, it has much enhanced system reliability thanks to no shoot-through problems and lower switching loss with the help of using power MOSFETs. With phase-shift control, it theoretically eliminates the inherent current zero-crossing distortion of the single-unit dual buck type inverter. In addition, phase-shift control and cascade topology can greatly reduce the ripple current or cut down the size of passive components by increasing the equivalent switching frequency. A cascade dual buck inverter has been designed and tested to demonstrate the feasibility and advantages of the system by comparing single-unit dual buck inverter, 2-unit and 3-unit cascade dual buck inverters at the same 1 kW, 120 V ac output conditions.
