Multilevel Inverters: Topologies, Control Methods, and Applications investigates modern device topologies, control methods, and application areas for the rapidly developing conversion technology. The device topologies section begins with conventional two-level inverter topologies to provide a background on the DC-AC power conversion process and required circuit configurations. Thereafter, multilevel topologies originating from neutral point clamped topologies are presented in detail. The improved and inherited regular multilevel topologies such as flying capacitor and conventional H-bridge topology are presented to illustrate the multilevel concept. Emerging topologies are introduced regarding application areas such as renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and power systems. The book goes on to discuss fundamental operational principles of inverters using the conventional pulse width modulated control method. Current and voltage based closed loop control methods such as repetitive control, space vector modulation, proportional resonant control and other recent methods are developed. Core modern applications including wind energy, photovoltaics, microgrids, hybrid microgrids, electric vehicles, active filters, and static VAR compensators are investigated in depth. Multilevel Inverters for Emergent Topologies and Advanced Power Electronics Applications is a valuable resource for electrical engineering specialists, smart grid specialists, researchers on electrical, power systems, and electronics engineering, energy and computer engineers.
