In this paper, a novel common-mode voltage reduction technique is proposed for a three-phase multilevel inverter. The technique can be used to control capacitors voltages and load currents with low switching losses. It can be applied to a three-phase three-level inverter with the flying capacitor topology. One of the advantages of this method is that the technique can be applied to more voltage levels without significantly changing the control algorithm. The simulation results of a five-level inverter in this paper indicate that the proposed technique can be used to implement a multilevel inverter.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
