A new multi-level VSC is proposed with highly reduced voltage and current harmonic distortion, without the need for filters or PWM. The multi-pulse waveform is achieved by means of two auxiliary reinjection bridges, which produce voltage pulses at six times the fundamental frequency. The proposed scheme simplifies the switching circuitry of present schemes for similar levels of waveform distortion and can operate in four quadrants without capacitor balancing problems.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
