Abstract

This paper presents an overview of multilevel inverter for the power quality improvement of wind energy system. It produces waveform with less harmonic content and work on the principle of pulse width modulation. Generation of pulses by this method gives ripple less waveform and less harmonic content closely to pure sinusoidal waveform. As the depreciation of conventional energy sources, non-conventional energy sources are now being used for the electrical power generation and in non-conventional energy sources most popular method is wind energy generation system. But there is some difficulty of integration of variable output voltage wind energy generation system to power system grid operating at constant voltage & frequency. We have developed a simulink model of a multi-level inverter connected in cascade using MATLAB and applied the developed model in the field of electric power generation from wind. By using the DC voltages constant or variable at different level we can achieve AC voltage at desired level with the help of multi-level inverter connected in cascade and by this method we can achieve any level of voltage at output.
