Multilevel power electronics converters offer significant advantages over the two-level counterparts, particularly in high-power, high-voltage applications. This tutorial will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art for multilevel power electronics converters and focus on two major developments of the last years, hybrid multilevel converters (HMCs) and the modular multilevel converter (MMC).
