Abstract
This article reviews the fundamentals of multilevel multiphase neutral-point-clamped DC–AC power converters. These converters are configured with one or more legs and a common DC-link. Each leg is functionally equivalent to a single-pole multiple-throw switch (n¿=¿3 positions) and it is implemented with a combination of only power semiconductor devices. The main leg topologies are initially presented, both active(transistor) clamped and passive(diode) clamped, for any number of levels. The l...
