Abstract

This paper introduces space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) algorithm to reduce the Common Mode Voltage (CMV) of a three-phase Voltage Source Inverter (VSI). The proposed algorithm reduces the switching losses of the inverter in conjunction with the CMV magnitude for the entire linear operating region. Three CMV reduction schemes are employed in this algorithm. These schemes are Active-Zero State PWM (AZSPWM), Remote-state PWM (RSPWM) and Near State PWM (NSPWM) schemes. The detailed analysis and comparison of the three methods in terms of CMV and switching losses with conventional SVPWM method are introduced. Finally, an algorithm is developed to obtain a superior performance in terms of CMV reduction and switching losses minimization for the entire linear modulation range.
