This work presents the development of the space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) of a new multi-level converter topology. First, the proposed converter and its natural space vectordiagram are presented. Secondly, a modified space vector diagram based on the virtual-vectorstechnique is shown. Simulation results by using a space vector approach are presented. Special emphasis is given on the total harmonic distortion (THD) by making a comparison with those of the classical NPC topologies.
