Abstract:

This paper concentrated on the modular multi level inverters (MMC) has enhanced features for the high power energy conversion based applications. From the last past years MMC has specified unique investigation completed to identify the technical aspects interconnected with proper control techniques for the MMCS. This paper concentrated on the MMC operation under basic criteria’s also along with seventeen levels MMC proposed and analyzed with an effective Pulse Width Modulation. The modulation technique can maintain and produce the required reference voltage levels from the system. The implemented models are tested and verified within the MATLAB/SIMULINK. When we observe the results it produced minimized ripple contents at load side also reduced the THD values.
