Abstract
Modular multilevel converters (MMC) inherent features are gaining more attention for dc voltage transmission systems. One of the main research paths regarding the converter performance deals with its voltage modulation. Specifically, for medium voltage applications with relatively small number of submodules, the voltage modulation techniques impact on the MMC performance needs to be studied. This work provides an extensive review of the carrier-based pulse with modulation (CB-PWM) techniques pro...
