Paper Abstract

This paper studies the method to theoretically calculate the power loss, maximum switching frequency, and thermal resistance for a grid-connected multilevel converter. Especially, the commercial IGBT modules were selected to demonstrate the calculation procedures, which provides a useful tool for the selection of devices only based on the data sheet to satisfy the design requirement for a multilevel converter.
