Abstract: Paper Setup must be in A4 size with Margin: Top In the present paper multi carrier sinusoidal modulation technique which is an efficient method of producing control signals is used for a symmetrical inverter with several levels in cascade H Bridge is discussed. The Cascaded H-Bridge performance output levels depend on the DC voltage sources used at the input side. With the help of two DC voltage sources, five level output can be obtained whereas three sources gives levels of seven in output voltage. In this paper, multi-carrier SPWM switching is obtained for switching of multilevel inverter based switches. Two signals are used in this switching method, among which one of the signals is reference which is a low frequency sinusoidal signal and the one is a carrier signal. In case of sinusoidal PWM method of modulation technique, the reference signal is a sinusoidal one and triangular signal can be used as a carrier signal. These types of inverters have the ability to generate inverted output voltage with an efficient harmonic spectrum and reliable output results. This document provides switching signal for H-bridge inverter structure which can improve harmonic performance. The 5-level multilevel inverter is simulated for traditional carrier-based pulse-width modulation (PWM) phase change carrier techniques. The total harmonic performance of the output voltages is analyzed for the two PWM control methods. The performance of the symmetrical PWM CHB is simulated using MATLAB-SIMULINK model. Model results show that THD can be minimized to a limit with level shifted modulation method of the sinusoidal pulse width. The results from the simulations show that the quality of the waveform of the output voltage improves with less loss and with a lower THD.
