The multicarrier phase-shifted sinusoidal pulse-width modulation (MPS-SPWM) technique is well-known for its important advantage of offering an increased overall bandwidth as the number of carriers multiplied with their equal frequency directly controls the location of the dominant harmonics. In this paper, a five-level (line-to-neutral) multilevel selective harmonic elimination PWM (MSHE-PWM) strategy based on an equal number of switching transitions when compared against the previously mentioned technique is proposed. It is assumed that the four triangular carriers of the MPS-SPWM method have nine per unit frequency resulting in seventeen switching transitions for every quarter period. Requesting the same number of transitions from the MSHE-PWM allows the control of sixteen non-triplen harmonics. It is confirmed that the proposed MSHE-PWM offers significantly higher converter bandwidth along with higher modulation operating range. Selected results are presented to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed technique.
