The article presents a novel carrier-based pulsewidth modulation technique for multiphase neutral point clamped converters. The technique is aimed to actively control the neutral point (NP) potential while supplying the desired set of line-to-line voltages to the load. Standard techniques are either based on the sole common mode voltage injection or on the sole multistep switching mode; contrarily, the proposed algorithm combines these two approaches to take advantage of their main benefits. The technique performs well for each number of phases, for each modulation index, and for each type of load. It can control in closed-loop the NP voltage to any desirable value with a reduced number of switching transitions. The proposed approach has been experimentally validated and compared with other carrier-based algorithms.

Abstract

The article presents a novel carrier-based pulsewidth modulation technique for multiphase neutral point clamped converters. The technique is aimed to actively control the neutral point (NP) potential while supplying the desired set of line-to-line voltages to the load. Standard techniques are either based on the sole common mode voltage injection or on the sole multistep switching mode; contrarily, the proposed algorithm combines these two approaches to take advantage of their main benefits. The technique performs well for each number of phases, for each modulation index, and for each type of load. It can control in closed-loop the NP voltage to any desirable value with a reduced number of switching transitions. The proposed approach has been experimentally validated and compared with other carrier-based algorithms.
