Three-phase multilevel inverters are used in many medium- and high-power applications such as motor drives and grid-connected systems. Despite numerous PWM techniques for multilevel inverters have been developed, the impact of these modulation schemes on the peak-to-peak output current ripple amplitude has not been addressed yet. In this paper the analysis and the comparison of current ripple for two- and three-level voltage source inverters are given. Reference is made to optimal and popular modulation, so-called centered PWM, easily obtained by both carrier-based modulation (phase disposition, with proper common-mode voltage injection) and space vector modulation (nearest three vectors). It is shown that the peak-to-peak current ripple amplitude in three-level inverters can be determined on the basis of the ripple in two-level inverters, obtaining the same re-sults as by directly analyzing the output voltage waveforms of the three-level inverters. This procedure can be readily extended to higher level numbers. The proposed analytical developments are verified by both numerical simulations and experimental tests.
