Nowadays, electrical energy is the alternative to supply aircraft systems. In this paper a new converter for ground power units supply in aircraft applications is proposed. The topology consists in a rectifier with an active current injection circuit linked to a three level neutral point clamped converter. The design procedure is detailed in this paper showing the principal requirements for the safe operation of the converter. Simulation results validate the good performance of the proposed system.
