In this paper, the requirements imposed by a direct torque control (DTC) strategy on multilevel inverters are analyzed. A control strategy is proposed in order to fulfill those requirements when a flying-capacitor multilevel inverter is used. Simulation and practical results will confirm the performance of the proposed strategy when using the multilevel inverter to control an induction motor by the DTC principle. Also, the advantages of using a multilevel inverter with a DTC strategy are shown by simulation results.
