(ABSTRACT)

Several space vector modulation schemes have been analyzed for three-leg and four-leg

voltage source inverters. The analysis is performed with respect to a) switching losses, b)

total harmonic distortion, c) peak-to-peak ripple in the line current and d) the ease of

digital implementation. The analysis is performed over the entire range of modulation

index and for varying load power factors (leading and lagging) under both balanced and

unbalanced load conditions. The analysis shows that the performance of four-leg inverters

is similar to three-leg inverters for various space vector modulation schemes. The analysis

also verifies the fact that a modulation scheme with good harmonic performance usually

has high switching losses and vice-versa. The analysis is verified using simulation and

experiments. A novel algorithm for the calculation of total harmonic distortion of PWM

signals has been proposed.
