Closed Loop Control of Switched-Capacitor Inverter Using Series/Parallel Conversion

This paper proposes a novel switched-capacitor inverter. The switching operation of the capacitors in series and in parallel produces larger voltage than the input voltage in the proposed inverter. Based on the number of the capacitors the maximum output voltage is determined. In the conventional unit both boost converter and an inverter bridge are present whereas the proposed inverter does not need any inductors thus it is smaller than the former one. And also produces fewer harmonics compared to conventional one. The circuit configuration and the simulation results are shown in this paper. The simulation is done with MATLAB/ SIMULINK software.
