Simulation and Modelling of 5-Level Single Phase Z-Source based Cascaded Inverter


Objectives: This paper illuminatessimulation and modelling of 5-level single phase Z-source based cascaded scheme inverter and its progress for output voltage twice the applied input voltage. Methods/Analysis: Z-source network utilizes a unique impedence network (L-C) combinations to connect with 5-level cascaded inverter, which gives unique features that cannot be obtained from the conventional inverter citcuits. Z-source network trounce the various restrictions of conventional voltage source inverter and current source inverters like reduced losses, voltage stress, improved output voltage. By using the shoot-through conditions the duty ratio of the proposed system can be speckled to achieve better output source voltage compare to conventional methods. This method is imitation using matlab - simulink with experimental results are verified using dsPIC controller. Findings: Z-source cascaded type H-bridge inverter facilitates to boost functional source voltage without any conservative dc - dc boost converters. The output source voltage of the planned system increased twice that of conventional inverter system and better current control is achieved.SPWM technique used to contorl the power switches placed in the proposed system. Novelty/ Improvement: The total harmonic level in the proposed system diminished and voltage stress in the each power switches also reduced. The method keeps away from the convention of dc/dc converter, diminishes the expenditure of the scheme and reduces voltage stress in the switches.
