Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper different open loop PWM control techniques for multilevel voltage source inverters are investigated and compared. For sinusoidal PWM control, a comparison between different carrier techniques with different modulating signals is performed. This comparison includes total harmonic distortion and distortion factor of the phase and line voltages. A comparison between different modulating signals in sinusoidal PWM (pure sinusoidal, third harmonic injection, and dead band), space vector modulation, and sigma-delta modulation is performed. This comparison includes total harmonic distortion, distortion factor, fundamental, and harmonic r.m.s. of the line voltage.
