A voltage source inverter generating a polygonal voltage space vector structure (SVS) having 117- concentric 30-sided polygons of different radii are proposed. Modulation using a 30-sided SVS eliminates lower order harmonics till 25th order from motor phase voltage. The proposed scheme combines the advantages of a 30-sided SVS with that of a multilevel inverter. The topology consists of two cascaded five-level inverters feeding from either end of the open-end induction motor stator windings. One of the cascaded five-level inverter is connected to an active dc source and delivers the required active power for the scheme, while the other is capacitor fed and acts as a switched capacitive filter. In this article, nonaligned 30-sided polygons, i.e., regular 30-sided polygons that are not symmetric with respect to alpha and beta axis are also considered for inverter operation. The harmonic analysis of such nonaligned 30-sided polygons is investigated in this article. Nearest level switching is employed throughout the modulation range, enabling further reduction of switching loss in the system. Extensive hardware experimentations are carried out to validate the proposed scheme and the results are included in the article.
