This paper concentrated on the non conventional energy sources requirement in now days because they are contamination free, effortlessly erectable, and unlimited. In this process one effective converter is required to produce the general ac power from the dc power which is fed back to grid. Here cascaded multi level inverter preferred for the conversion of dc power into our ac power with the integration of non conventional energy source generated power. Flying capacitor technology contains the number of capacitors higher manner in this case the controlling of charging and discharging methods are very difficult and the diode clamped inverters having the utilizations extra switches like as diodes. The MLI converters dc voltage levels into ac with less harmonic contents with presence of additional special switching operation with the SPWM technique and also provided MPPT algorithm which is utilized to enhance the system performance to the grid side by controlling the frequency. The seven level MLI are implemented with SPWM technique the models are tested and verified within the MATLAB/SIMULINK.
