INDUCTIVE CLAMPING CIRCUIT FOR DC LINK VOLTAGE BALANCING OF FIVE-LEVEL NPC-VSI
Rédha Chibani - El Madjid Berkouk - Mohamed S. Boucherit
A new control solution to compensate the unbalanced DC voltages for the five-level Neutral Point Clamped Voltage Source Inverter (NPC-VSI) is presented. It provides a fast and flexible control of the inverter capacitor voltages. The inverter capacitor voltage control is completely independent from the load control, leading to a simpler implementation.
