Abstract In this paper, a novel topology of two-level voltage-type inverter is proposed. The proposed inverter has three bridge arms while each bridge is made up of two thyristors, one IGBT and four diodes. Thyristors complete the phase positioning of the inverter, IGBT completes the modulation of different modulation modes such as SPWM, SVPWM, and SHPWM, and the diodes complete the commutation of the bridge arms. Compared to the traditional voltage-type inverter with six IGBTs, the proposed voltage-type inverter using three IGBTs can achieve the same function with highly reduced cost. The principle of the proposed two-level inverter is explained in detail. The simulation and experiment results demonstrate the performance and effectiveness of the proposed inverter-type inverter.
