An Experiment on Pulse width-Modulated Modular Multilevel Converters
Manikanta Anumalusetty,  Sireesha Ganta
Modular Multilevel Converters (MMCs) are distinguished by their modular nature that makes them suitable for wide range of high power and high voltage applications. However, they are vulnerable to internal faults because of the large number of series connected Sub-Modules. Additionally, it is highly recommended not to block the converter even if it is subjected to internal faults to secure the supply, to increase the reliability of the system and prevent unscheduled maintenance. This paper tells about the basic operation of modular multilevel converter and explain about the operation of each sub module. About the plus width modulation which is used to triggering the modular multilevel converter(MMC). by using the matlab the simulation process is done.
