Simulation of Three-phase

Nine-level Inverter for

Induction Motor Drive
Conventional inverter has been used since the past
decades in the field of industrial applications and power
systems of lower power usage. Problems appeared when it
comes to high power and medium voltages usage.
Conventional inverters are found that it is no longer fulfill
the requirement of voltage usage due to the incapable of
reducing harmonic contents. It has high switching losses,
lower efficiency and the lifespan of the systems due to
long term constraining. This lead to the growth of
Multilevel Inverter (MLI), the creation of multiple DC levels
that combined into sinusoidal wave which reduces
harmonic distortion. MLI topologies are introduced to be
functioning under high frequency with lesser switching
losses and higher efficiency. Therefore, a 9-level
multilevel inverter is designed and simulated to produces
a lower THD content.
 It shows that the percentage of THD decreased abruptly
when the number of level increased. This meant that
the harmonic distortion is decreased as the voltage level
of a Cascaded H Bridge MLI is increased. As a result,
the performance of the Cascaded H-Bridge MLI is
depending on the voltage levels in terms of THD
