Multilevel Inverters: Control Methods and Power Electronics Applications provides a suite of powerful control methods for conventional and emerging inverter topologies instrumentalized in power electronics applications. It introduces readers to the conventional pulse width modulation control of multilevel voltage source inverter topologies before moving through more advanced approaches including hysteresis control, proportional resonance control, and model predictive control. Later chapters survey the power electronics connection between device topologies and control methods, particularly focusing on conversion in renewable energy systems, electric vehicles, static VAR compensators and solid-state transformers.

Key Features

  • Examines modern design configurations for multilevel inverter controllers, emerging control methods, and their applications
  • Presents detailed application examples of multilevel inverters deployed in modern and recent power electronic areas including renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and grid management
  • Discusses deployment and development of future power converter implementation


Graduate and early career researchers at MSc and PhD level in energy and power engineering, power systems and computer engineering. Electrical Engineering and Smart Grid practitioners
