Abstract

Requiring a high number of power switches and their rating are the main limitations of multilevel converters in medium-voltage applications. The main objective of this paper is, introduce a reduced asymmetric basic module (RABM) for cascaded multilevel converters that require a less number of power switches and a lower total blocking voltage value in competition with other multilevel converter topologies. The proposed module comprises eight half-bridge converters that are connected in different ways to generate 63-level. The comparison results among the proposed module and other multilevel converters show that proposed module can generate a large number of levels with keeping constant the number of power switches. The simulation outcomes confirm the performance of the proposed module in both symmetric and asymmetric operation modes. Index Terms-basic module; reduced multilevel; cascaded topology.
