A quasi-linear Cascaded H-Bridge multilevel inverter is introduced for solar application. In this paper, a separate solar panel with boost converter is placed instead of DC sources in the proposed configuration. The Incremental and Conductance maximum power point algorithm method is implemented for tracking maximum power with a fast response. Sinusoidal reference with triangular carriers is utilized in pulse width modulation for generating the switching pulses for proposed inverter. The proposed inverter can generate a 19-level output voltage with total harmonic distortion of 6.10% which is simulated using MATLAB/Simulink. Cost analysis of power switches is discussed. © 2016 The Authors.
