Abstract
This paper presents new technique of multilevel inverter where pulse width modulation technique (PWM) is used, using tap changer transformer. A microcontroller circuit put dc source voltage at the primary tap changing side of transformer by switching, the related switches and eventually controls the volume of the output voltage. On other hand, at the secondary side of transformer, the load is connected. MATLAB model is used to simulate the proposed inverter for thirteen levels. In Proteus/software, Arduino UNO is used for seven levels sinusoidal inverter. Finally, Designed circuit reduced THD of the output voltage grandly.
