In this article, a new hybrid multilevel inverter topology is proposed for medium and high voltage applications with new carrier based modulation techniques are presented. The performance of the developed topology has been realized in terms of a number of switches, gate driver circuits, and maximum blocking voltage. The proposed modulation technique produces a low Total Harmonic Distortion with improved fundamental component of Root Mean Square output voltage. Finally, 13-level laboratory based hardware test has been conducted and it has good agreement with simulation results.
