In this paper, a digital sinusoidal pulse width modulation (DSPWM) multilevel technique of 27-levels based on field programmable gate array (FPGA) is introduced, as an alternative to control of the direct current/alternating current multilevel power converters. The implementation of this technique with an FPGA XC3S500E model is achieved in the Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA platforms. An experimental prototype is implemented by 3-cascaded H-bridges controlled by the DSPWM multilevel technique, generating high efficiency, low cost, and lower harmonic content. The efficiency of the DSPWM multilevel technique using R, RL, RC, and RLC loads connected to the power network is verified.
