Main Article Content


Many dual multilevel inverter topologies have been investigated for simplifying hardware building and reducing cost. This paper introduces dual two-level inverters which are formed from two standard two-level inverters with using carrier based PWM approach. The proposed method has been validated by simulation results and verified by the experiment using DSP controller DSPACE kit DS1104.
