Abstract

In recent years Multilevel Converter (MLC) plays a vital role in wind power genration. In this paper, Shifted Carrier - Pulse Width Modulation (SC-PWM) based hybrid device multilevel converter configuration for 5 MW wind mill are proposed. A five level cascaded hybrid device MLC is developed and the simulations are performed using MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation results are offered and their performances are analyzed by implementing FPGA SPARTAN-3 processor. The proposed MLC reduces the THD and increases the output voltage.
