Cascaded inverters are ideal for connecting renewable energy sources with an AC grid, because of the need for separate dc sources, which is the case in applications such as photo voltaics or fuel cells. The inverter could be controlled to either regulate the power factor of the current drawn from the source or the bus voltage of the electrical system where the inverter was connected. The modulation techniques are crucial in operating any inverter at desired conditions. In this paper different pwm techniques are implemented for three level and five level cascaded mli and THD variation is analysed with variation of modulation index.
