Sinus Output 3-Phase Inverter Topology for Improved Drive Efficiency

Traditionally electrical drives and uninterruptable power supplies generate pulse width modulated outputs. Harmonic content of such waveforms are known to cause problems. Therefore, it is worthwhile to investigate 3-phase sinus output topologies, which can compete with traditional inverter topologies, regarding performance and cost. In this paper, first some topologies for producing single-phase sinus output are reviewed. Then, the possibility of using these single-phase units for producing 3-phase output is investigated. Finally, the findings are evaluated and the course for further investigation is identified.
