Abstract

A novel Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) three-level NPC inverter topology using a new ZVS Space Vector Modulation (SVM) scheme is proposed. A detailed operation analysis of ZVS three-level NPC inverter is given. The ZVS condition of the proposed ZVS inverter is derived and it can be achieved of all switches in the proposed inverter, which include both the main switches and the auxiliary switches. The design of resonant circuits parameters is also provided. Finally the proposed circuit and ZVS SVM scheme are verified by experimental results and demonstrate a superior performance.
