Resumen

This paper proposes a new 5-level voltage source converter for medium voltage (MV) and high power applications. The proposed converter can operate over a wide range of voltages with fewer number of power switches and components compared to the available 5-level power converters. Using a 4-level Nested Neutral Point Clamped and the Model Predictive Control strategy, it is possible to achieve a 5-level power converter without changes in the topology of the 4-level power converter. The performance of the proposed converter is verified by simulations.
