This paper presents an improved hysteresis current control method for five level T-type inverter. The proposed method is based on four hysteresis levels and performed to generate switching signals of fundamental transistors in T-type inverter. By using generated signals through hysteresis controller, bidirectional switch in T-type inverter is triggered through the logical way. The system is detailed in analytical expression and exhibited to generate five voltage levels at the output of inverter. The improved technique is based on an error signal between the output current and the reference value. Therefore, the proposed modulation technique achieves the following output current at the desired value and ensures high-efficiency conversion ratio at the output. In order to show the validity of the proposed method, the controller is compared with conventional sinusoidal pulse width modulated T-type inverter. In performance results, it is obvious that the proposed method provides a lower total harmonic distortion in comparison with conventional method.
