New symmetrical multilevel inverter topology with reduced number of power electronic switches is introduced in this paper, which results in reduction of installation area, converter cost, losses, and have simplicity of control system. The proposed topology consists of series connected sub multilevel inverter blocks. Principles of operation and switching functions are well analyzed. Simulation results are provided for seven levels inverter to validate the proposed theory.
