This paper presents the control of a multilevel inverter supplied by a Photovoltaic (PV) panel and a batteries bank. It is well known that the power quality of multilevel inverter signals depends on their number of levels. However, the question that arises is whether there is a limit beyond which it is not necessary to increase the number of level. This question is addressed in this paper. Three, nine and fifteen-level converters are studied. The harmonics content of the output signals are analyzed. A simplified Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) method for a multilevel inverter that supplied an induction motor is developed. The controller equations are such that the SPWM pulses are generated automatically for any number of levels. The effectiveness of the propose method is evaluated in simulation. Matlab®/Simulink is used to implement the control algorithm and simulate the system.
