Multilevel Inverter widely used in high power industrial applications. This paper presents a new modified cascaded H-Bridge multilevel inverter with reduction of switching component. In traditional CHB inverters required more number of components, it seem to more complex control circuitry and bulky. Since Last few decade the researchers from all over world concentrating to improve the efficiency of Multilevel Inverter such as voltage balancing, reduction in components, modulation methods and control technique etc. The Proposed multilevel inverter output voltage level increasing by using less number of switches driven by the multicarrier modulation techniques. In this paper presents generalized structure, Operation, comparison with other traditional topology, Simulation results with MATLAB/SIMULINK and experimental results.
