A Near State PWM Method With Reduced Switching Frequency And Reduced Common Mode Voltage For Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverters

2007-05-05
The Near State PWM (NSPWM) method, which reduces the common mode voltage/current, is proposed for three-phase PWM inverter drives. The optimal voltage vectors and their sequences are determined. The voltage linearity and DC bus and AC output PWM current ripple characteristics are studied. The method is thoroughly investigated and its performance is compared to conventional methods. Theory, simulations, and experiments show that NSPWM exhibits superior common mode and satisfactory PWM ripple performance characteristics.

Hava, Ahmet Masum (2011-07-01)
A high-performance pulsewidth modulation (PWM) algorithm with reduced common-mode voltage (CMV) and satisfactory overall performance is proposed for three-phase PWM inverter drives. The algorithm combines the near-state PWM (NSPWM) method that has superior overall performance characteristics at high modulation index, and MAZSPWM, a modified form of the active zero-state PWM method (AZSPWM1), which is suitable for low modulation index range of operation. Since AZSPWM1 has line-to-line voltage pulse reversals...
Analysis and Characterization of DC Bus Ripple Current of Two-Level Inverters Using The Equivalent Centered Harmonic Approach
Ayhan, Ufuk; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2011-09-22)
The dc bus PWM ripple current of three-phase two-level voltage source inverters is a function of the PWM method, the load current magnitude, power factor angle, and the modulation index. Thus, the ripple current characteristics are highly involved and difficult to understand. Using the double Fourier integral approach, this paper investigates the ripple current characteristics thoroughly for a wide range of operating conditions and PWM methods. Then, the equivalent harmonic approach is used to lump the ripp...
