Abstract

This paper presents a novel control approach for a 5-level Packed U Cell (PUC5) inverter based on its average model. The system under study composed of PV arrays connected to the grid through a single-phase PUC5 inverter. The PV system injects an alternative current into the grid with low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), while balancing power among the inverter cells. A non-linear feedback technique plugged-in with a reduced carriers Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) approach (only 2 PWM carrier signals are employed) is applied to ensure a good tracking quality. Simulation results are presented to prove the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.
