MATLAB/SIMLINK Model for Three Phase Hybrid Multilevel Inverter Based on Half Bridge Modules

E.Madhana Gopal


Nowadays the multilevel inverters are widely used in power electronic applications. The multilevel inverters are recommended for medium and high voltage applications. Multilevel inverters have become more popular due to reduced switching losses, low costs, low harmonic distortion and high voltage capability when compared to traditional PWM inverters. This paper deals with hybrid multilevel converter which is synthesize of neutral point clamped and cascaded multilevel inverter. The hybrid multilevel converter is proposed for medium voltage large power ratings. The proposed converter consisting of voltage source inverter connected with half bridge modules at each phase. With the proposed connection large portion of energy can be preceded by the VSI by connecting single multi pulse rectifier. The smaller power shares processed within the half bridge modules. The modulation scheme for hybrid multilevel inverter is naturally achieved by using logic circuit. The modulation scheme for four-level version is analyzed in detail for higher modulation (HM), three level version is analyzed for lower modulation (LM). This modulation scheme allows unidirectional power flow in all DC sources. For unidirectional application, the diode bridges are employed at rectification input side. The modulation schemes of sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM), space vector PWM (SVPWM) are analyzed by using MATLAB/SIMLINK. The comparison of THD’s for SPWM and SVPWM modulation techniques done by using MATLAB/SIMLINK.
