Inverter is necessary for DC to AC conversion for uninterrupted AC power supply and utilization of many types of AC electrical equipment in our day to day life. Square wave inverter and modified sine wave (actually a cascaded square wave) inverter is available which includes total harmonic distortion (THD). In fact the generation of a pure sinusoidal AC voltage is a big challenge with minimum amount of total harmonic distortion. This paper deals with the design of a project which is the hardware implementation of a two level PWM driver to achieve close approximated sinusoidal waveform for DC to AC conversion with low harmonic distortion in unloaded condition.
