This paper presents a switching strategy for multilevel cascade inverters, based on the space-vector theory. The proposed switching strategy generates a voltage vector with very low harmonic distortion and reduced switching frequency. This new control method is an attractive alternative to the classic multilevel pulsewidth modulation techniques considering the following aspects: (1) voltage and current total harmonic distortion; (2) range of linear operation; and (3) number of commutations.
