A five-level VSI(Voltage Source Inverter) is introduced as a SVC(Static Vu Compensator) like a large scale power source. The problems in using SVC are that the power device can easily be destroyed by voltage unbalance and accurate reactive power control is difficult because of voltage variation. A asymmetrical PAM(Pulse Amplitude Modulation) switching pattern is proposed to solve this problem and analyze both fundamental component and harmonic current in the system. Through experimental results of 3.5 kVA experimental test system, It is confirmed that DC capacitor voltage can be controlled by asymmetrical PAM switching pattern control.
