Abstract: This work is based on a multi-level inverter novel technique for multilevel output voltage. The implementation of this topology is built on capacitor switching method and the output levels count is calculated from the sum of capacitor switching cells. One DC voltage source or from solar panel is used and the capacitor voltage balancing problem can be avoided .This model can be enhanced with higher rating and also it has simple gate driver circuit due to reduced number of switches. Operating norm of this multilevel inverter and modulation techniques are also presented and performance of the inverter with existing technology is also discussed with proposed work. The proposed eleven level multilevel inverter is modeled using Matlab/simulink and results are presented, also compared with existing reduced level inverter topology.
Keywords: Multi Level Inverter, AC Power Source, Simulation.
