Mapped phase-shifted space vector modulation for multi-level voltage-source inverters

Massoud, A. and Finney, S.J. and Cruden, A.J. and Williams, B.W. (2007) Mapped phase-shifted space vector modulation for multi-level voltage-source inverters. IET Electric Power Applications, 1 (4). pp. 622-636.

A new multi-level space vector modulation (SVM) technique, termed mapped phase-shifted SVM, is proposed. The SVM technique enables the use of two-level SVM with multi-level inverters without introducing any carrier level modulation or phase shifts. The proposed technique is theoretically analysed for three-, five- and seven-level inverters and then generalised for the m-level inverter, validated by simulation using Matlab/Simulink, and confirmed practically for a five-level, shunt, active power filter.
