Switching state redundancy provides ﬂexibility in multilevel systems and maybe used to achieve some control objectives such as capacitors voltage balancing, current control of dc-sources, switch power loss balancing and fault tolerance. This paper studies the per-phase redundancy in three basic multilevel topologies: diode-clamped converter, ﬂying capacitor converter and cascaded bull-bridge converters. The number of per-phase redundant switching states, the rules for triggering each topology and the relationships among them are studied through this paper and simulation results are presented.
Keywords: multilevel converter, redundancy , cascaded bridge inverter
