Implementing natural PWM digitally

Walker, Geoffrey R. & Ledwich, Gerard F. (1996) Implementing natural PWM digitally. In Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference (AUPEC’96), 2-4 October 1996, University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.


For dynamic closed loop control of a multilevel converter with a low switching frequency, natural sampled PWM is the best form of modulation. However previous natural sampled PWM implementations have generally been analog. A digital implementation has advantages, particularly for a multilevel converter. Re-sampled uniform PWM, a modulation technique which approaches the performance of natural PWM, is implemented both in software and hardware. Results demonstrating the improvement over uniformPWM techniques are presented.

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.
