Multilevel inverters have been widely used for high-voltage and high-power applications. Their perf0rmance is greatly superi0r t0 that 0f c0nventi0nal tw0-level inverters due t0 their reduced t0tal harm0nic dist0rti0n (THD),. This t0p0l0gy requires fewer c0mp0nents when c0mpared t0 di0de clamped, flying capacit0r and Bridgeless cascaded inverters and it requires fewer carrier signals and gate drives. Theref0re, the 0verall c0st and circuit c0mplexity are greatly reduced. This paper presents a
