This project is based on a cascaded H bridge inverter and various topologies. This fifteen-level inverter has reduced the components and also reduce the cost of the Multilevel Inverter. To reduce the power switches.


The multilevel inverter provides a suitable solution for medium and high power systems to synthesize an output voltage which allows a reduction of harmonic content in voltage and current waveforms. The solar photovoltaic (PV) modules directly convert the light energy into electrical energy, but energy obtained from the PV module acts as a low voltage DC source and has relatively low conversion efficiency. In order to improve the efficiency and convert low voltage DC source into usable AC source, the power electronics converters are used to transform DC into AC.

Existing System

In this project, a digital logic control circuit is proposed for a solar-fed CMLI to achieve higher levels with a reduced number of switches without the requirement of bidirectional switches, filter components, detailed look-up tables, and output transformers. The techniques include ?binary?, ?trinary?, and modified multilevel connections? (MMCs) to achieve 15 levels and 27 levels, respectively So that total harmonic distraction (THD) is high.

Proposed System

This project proposed a new multilevel inverter with a reduced number of switches and the switching losses are also get reduced with reduced total harmonics distortion(THD).

The pic controller is used to generate the PWM pulses for the converter and inverter circuit. The pic controller pulses are given to the driver circuit as input. Driver board is mainly used to isolate and amplify the input signals from the controller. The amplifieddriver output will be connected to the main power circuit devices. And the devices are turned on by using the PWM pulses. The power transformer is directly connected to the bridge rectifier. The bridge rectifier converts the ac voltage into a dc voltage. Dc voltage is converted into ac voltage by using a multilevel inverter circuit. The multilevel inverter output waveform is shown below.
