This paper deals with the impedance source (Z-source) multiphase inverter, where the maximum constant boost control method is studied and analyzed in the general case of number of phases. On the other side the impact of the modulation index and the number of phases on the duty cycle shoot-through and on the gain of the output voltage ranges is presented. To validate advantages of the Z-source multiphase inverter, the proposed topology and the maximum constant boost control are implemented in simulation and in real time experimentation with Z-source five phase inverter. The output voltage is applied to two parallel loads, a five phase resistive load and a five phase induction machine.
