This article presents a selective harmonic elimination-pulse-width modulation (SHE-PWM) method for cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverters. The concept of volt–second area balancing is applied to estimate the voltage ratings of the dc sources, which provides different voltage ratings of each dc source. The control ofoutput voltage is achieved by varying switching notch created at the centre of each level. This method calculates switching angles in real time easily owing to the usage of univariate equations. A comparison study shows that the proposed method eliminates more harmonics compared with the conventional SHE-PWM methods. Simulation and experimental studies are conducted to validate the performance of the proposed SHE-PWM method.

Direct torque control (DTC) of a grid-connected doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) necessitates at least 2 stator current sensors, 2 rotor current sensors and a rotor position sensor. This letter presents a position-sensorless DTC scheme of DFIG without rotor current sensors. The elimination of two rotor currentsensors and position sensors improves hardware reliability by reducing the redundancy of physical components to be used. In the proposed scheme, the rotor flux vector magnitude and torque are estimated using measurable stator quantities. The effectiveness of proposed position-sensorless DTC scheme is validated using MATLAB/ Simulink for a 2-MW DFIG-based wind energy conversion system (WECS).
